Creative Confetti~Free for All!

So here I am again so soon, but I want to be sure to get this pretty card into this month's Power Poppy challenge...because seems like forever since I've been able to play along!
I loved Julie's challenge this month to do whatever your little heart desires.
This was an almost no-line coloring using a retired stamp from Flourishes that I love! It was colored in copics and the humming bird was stamped, colored, and then I went over some of the wings and lines with a metallic pen to add a little bit of silvery shimmer. I used another panel that I had embossed and added little ink droplets only this time in green. I love this technique because it adds a lot of texture and was perfect for the greens in my card today.

Because my original card photo looks a little washed is a close up of the humming  bird and flowers!

My card is over sized to accommodate all the panels and ribbon. It will be a special card for someone special as it took me quite awhile to color and figure out how to put it together. :)  Since the ribbon is a very sheer coral; it was a good choice to add to that corner panel.
Whew...well, once again, thanks so much for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my card today! I loved making it!

Creative Confetti~Make it Shimmer!

Today I am sharing a card for this month's Power Poppy Creative Confetti "Make it Shimmer" challenge! I had spent an afternoon just experimenting with some shimmer embossing paste that I had used with a new Altenew stencil on water color paper. The process went something like this....after you apply your paste you gently spritz the panel and then drop ink refill into the recesses and watch it spread out over the paper. This creates a lot of texture and color. The sparkle came from the SU! Shimmer Embossing Paste.
 I loved the shimmer but thought it would only do for an occasion that required some real I saved the panel for another day...
And then I saw the challenge over on the Power Poppy blog and knew this was the occasion! As you can see, I only used a part of my panel on  the lower portion and used the set, "A Wreath for All Seasons" from Power Poppy to stamp, coloring in shades to match my panel. I did borrow some inspiration from the Power Poppy blog to make my card...adding a vellum scalloped circle and a few tiny rhinestones. The "Joy" is silver embossed!
This card is one of those that evolved over time , but I was really happy with the outcome and to be able to use my embossed panel while it was still fairly fresh in my mind.
Thanks so much for your visit...and wishing you a blessed day!
