Below is my card for today's swap and the details. If you would like to see Daniels card you will find her card and blog HERE. My card is done with **Halloween Window and will be in Mitra's new FALL-WINTER supplement coming out in the next couple of weeks. When it is released and the stamps are on the site both will be announced on the IO blog. I am quite sure I will mention it here too. Ha!
And definitely don't forget to check out the Shimmerz Blog for their DT creations with Shimmerz and IO stamps for today!!! Check out the Shimmerz blog tomorrow for the next two brand new DT cards using IO and Shimmerz.
On another note, don't forget that DT member, Dina Kowal, has IO BLOG CANDY through Thursday HERE.
I painted the whole image with Twinks and Shimmerz. The Shimmerz I used are:
Sunny on the left hand side of the windows to show the light shadow and on the pumpkin eyes and mouth; Apricot to highlight the right side of the pumpkin; Orange Sherbet to highlight the berries, and Key Lime for the light half of the leaves, with a very thin coat over the dark half.Isn't that pumpkin and window just the greatest. I love that berry stuff too! Here how I did it. I painted everything in twinks and then used Shimmerz to highlight. And here's the kicker.
I had Shimmerz from a while back and forgot I had them. Now I used the Niji Waterbrush, so I tried using it with the Shimmerz and it turned out even more lovely than before. Look below to see how that happens. It's really hard to see it in a photo, but IRL, it just radiates a really rich shine giving it a silky look. This still doesn't do it justice. It takes on a radiance that is just pure loveliness. I think I'm in love with these as a combo with Twinks too. I've heard they are marvelous with Copics too.
Well that's it for today and I hope to see you either here on on the IO blog. Thanks for stopping by to look and share. I don't know if I will have time to visit blogs this week, but I am really missing that.
