I can't believe how fast this week has gone and that it's already FRIDAY!!!
Today at The Greeting Farm we have a fun Farm Fresh Friday challenge to add some SPARKLE to a fun birthday-themed card.
I have a REALLY fun new "thing" that I found to add some sparkle and shine to just about any project-but I'll get to that in a second-here's my card using Cuddle Anya :) This card is for a VERY special darling who has a b-day to celebrate...TODAY! A very happy birthday to my sweet Ava baby...I guess I can't call her a baby since she is FIVE years old today :( Wahhhhhh where does the time go??? Well, she's the baby of the family so she's always gonna be my baby, right? Sigh...love my babies so, so much and time just keeps on a-flyin'... Sheesh!
While Marie and I had about ten seconds to wander around CHA last winter, we stumbled upon the Tsukineko booth and I fell instantly in love with a new product they were demo-ing. Most of you know, Tsukineko makes a large variety of products, many of which you probably use, and most notable, the Memento Inks we all know and love as well as StazOn, Versamagic, Versamark, etc. Anyway, we came across their SHIMMER SPRITZ (scroll down 1/2 the page) while at CHA and I just had to give it a try.
I gotta tell ya, as much as I WANT to love 'other' companies' shimmery spritzy stuff, I just CANNOT get it to look right, let alone photograph. I dont really mind that it doesn't always show up on my photo although for a challenge like today's, you kind of NEED it to? Anyway, I struggle with other shimmer spritzes and have pretty much tried them all, and must say that Tsukineko's is hands down the best I've used. Look at this GORGEOUS shimmer:
You can actually spritz it over the WHOLE card and it doesn't run w/ Copics, stickles (I added a bit on her sleeve and scarf), anything! Just make sure your ink is dry. I also remember a demo at CHA where you can actually mix their frost or shimmer (which are the 2 I have) with re-inkers and get all your favorite colors of spritz. I'm perfectly happy with the sheer Frost and sheer Shimmer and would definitely recommend this product to anyone-Do you use it? Have you tried it? I'd love to hear if you love it too. Just fyi, they're not paying me or anything for this testimonial, LOL. I just REALLY am happy I finally found something I LIKE!
Well, thanks for coming by today and have a FANTASTIC Friday! I will be back with some fun Unity stuff tomorrow as well as another post from wonderland :) Be sure to stop by the rest of the TGF Farmers and Critter Crew today to see their adorable samples:
