Well today is a color challenge day at Create with Connie & Mary.  And I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with just these two colors – Very Vanilla and Champagne Glimmer!  I got out the paper and thought now what ink am I going to use!

2012 Create Thursday-010

I was a little concerned about what to do for this color challenge with no ink choices.  Then I remembered that we have Champagne Shimmer Paint.  And I recently purchased the Happy Hour stamp set so I thought I could use the champagne glass in that set.  But doing the whole glass in the shimmer paint was really light so instead I decided to add just a little bit of one other color (Soft Suede) – it’s just a hint to outline my glasses.  The champagne on the inside is the shimmer paint.


The card is Very Vanilla and then I have a strip of the Champagne glimmer paper – scallopped on one side.  I added some Very Vanilla Seam Binding around the card.  Then a punched circle stamped with the champagne glasses and “cheers!”.  I also took the shimmer paint and sponged it around the edges of the circle.  And the entire card is sprtized with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and the shimmer paint so it sparkles.  here is a closer look –


I have to tell you I was really happy with how the whole card turned out!  This would be a great wedding card of New Year card – what do you think?  What can you create with these two colors?  Have fun playing along.
