Shimmery Iris

I love the new line of Shady Tree Studios stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms. They are a lot of fun to color and there are so many options for using them. I colored this Iris Bloom with Copic markers to match the patterned paper and then went over the lighter areas of my coloring with some Shimmerz paint to give it a bit of sparkle. The image was stamped on Cryogen white paper, which also has a nice shimmer, and then it was cut with a long rectangle Nestabilities die and layered on a scalloped mat that was cut from Prism Majestic Purple card stock. The embossed patterned paper is from Cloud 9 Design.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages set. I die cut the tag and its mat using two Spellbinder's Double Ended tags, but cut them on one end with my scalloped edge scissors. The tag was adhered to my main image panel with a Stampin' Up lavender rhinestone brad. The sheer lavender ribbon is from Offray and was added to cover up a mistake I made....but I won't tell what it was ;-)

Thanks for looking. Have a good weekend!

Hey Robin, That's a pretty iris and the touch of Shimmerz is great. I see your thinking Easter already, I'm not quite there yet. Have a great weekend, Pat
