Wonderful Wednesday Giveaway -- Shimmerz Paints

I am uber-super excited. Today's giveaway is NOT stamps. Instead, I have these gorgeous Shimmerz Paints! If you have not yet heard about Shimmerz Paints, you are in for a wonderful, fun, glimmering time...They are happiness in a bottle!

The winner of this giveaway will receive the Bandanna Halloween card above (Bandanna Technique: August 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter), along with 4 colors of Shimmerz Paints: Butter Cream, Royal Purple, Iced Lavender and Pumpkin. The Bandanna card is super shimmery in person -- the witch, the pumpkins, "Happy Halloween" and even the spiderwebs were all painted with Shimmerz! As you can see on the right, the paints have a beautiful translucent sparkle to them. I bet I never put these away -- they will stay right on my desktop! (Note, the stamps used on the card are NOT part of the giveaway, they are from my personal collection.)

Here is what I love about Shimmerz (okay, I took this from their website, but I couldn't have said it better!!):

  • They're already mixed. No recipe, no mess
  • They're ridiculously shimmery
  • They dry on glossy or non-porous surfaces, so they're perfect for use on acetate or metal
  • They come in 35 spectacular colors
  • They're non-toxic
  • They're water-based
One thing I discovered while working with them is that when I wanted a different color, I simply colored my image with marker underneath, then painted over that with the Shimmerz Butter Cream -- it was like having custom colors at my disposal!
