Floral Wonder!

Hi Blog Friends!

I just couldn't stop playing with my new "toy,"
The Spellbinders Glimmer Machine!

I will be entering my card in
Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says:
"Use Something New"
Found here: 

I "Glimmered" my card stock & ran it through my Platinum,
& ended up with this wonderful golden scrolly pattern. 
Now what? I decided to add a floral to it!
Something different than what I've been seeing....

Floral Wonder
What do you think?
I used Spellbinders- Glimmer Die-Elegant Rectangle.
(This die comes with 2 other glimmer dies that fit inside of this rectangle.) 

I chose to use a Simon Says Stamp image-Beautiful Flowers 2.
I just stamped it over the glimmer in my Misti in a light ink, 
so I could do No Line Coloring.

I used Prisma Colored Pencils & lastly, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops for dew drops.

You can layer-up these foiled pieces, or do one layer cards.
I've found they add a NICE TOUCH to one layer cards.
The foiling just gives that little "umph" you're looking for in a one layer card.

The shine is unbelievable! 
I've found Spellbinders- Glimmer Machine to be SO EASY to use, &
the shine,  gives a better coverage than I've found with other machines that foil!

 A little TIP here:
I found my Glimmer Machine at  Hobby Lobby & used their 40% Off Coupon! ;)
The lady at the register wanted to know WHAT did I have??? LOL
I got to tell her ALL about the Glimmer Machine & it peaked her interest!
SSS carries them too, along with other stores!
I think they're going to be such a HIT! ;)

Hope you'll join in on the fun with the Glimmer Machine!
If you get one, let me know & I'll come over to visit! ;)
