Jacksonbelle Tuesday

Good morning girlies! You should like the color challenge Lila picked for today's Jacksonbelle Embellishment's Design Team! Pink plus anything!! Well, I love pink....so this one was an easy one! I've really been wanting to use this Inkadinkado, Silhouette Deer Trail, stamp that I've had for several weeks now - and I know I missed the Christmas in July, but we've had such an ugly summer here in Bandon, I felt like I could get away with Winter Greetings in August!

I really wanted to showcase this image because I think it is gorgeous just by itself, so I kept the layout very simple and only added the layered prima poinsettia, the ribbon and the sentiment and thought that was just enough!

I'm hoping that you can see the shimmer and shine in the picture because I stamped the deer with Shimmerz! Yup! I did! I know that I've read that you can stamp solid images with Shimmerz by painting it directly onto the stamp, but I wasn't sure how well it would work with this image...it is solid, but it also has quite a lot of detail. So, I first inked up the stamp with just a little bit of Pink Petunia Versamagic ink (a chalk-like ink), then I used a paint brush and dabbed on Burgundy Shimmerz, then I added just a bit more ink but made sure I didn't wipe off too much Shimmerz (my ink pad is now a bit shimmery, but I honestly don't mind!) then stamped! I am THRILLED with the results! It still maintained the detailed image with the pink ink, but it is oh so shimmery now! Yes, I could have just added the Shimmerz later with a paint brush, but I know that I can't paint that well in such intricate and tiny areas, so it had to come straight from the stamp!

Be sure to check out the other girls' stuff! I bet it will be pink!
