Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge #11

Here it is Tuesday again and time for another great challenge from Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. The challenge this week is being sponsored by

Glitterbabes Art Shop

This wonderful stamps are whimsical and so much fun to work with. Stef H the owner was gracious enough to give us an image to play with this week, Thanks Stef!

The theme for this week's challenge is Child Creations. Please come play this week with us and you can win a prize of 2 digi images of your choice from the Glitterbabes Art Shop.

All we ask is that you use Basic Grey Paper on you creation.

The ladies have created some wonderful creations this week to inspire you so make sure you check them out and leave them some love

I went for a shimmery effect on this card. I used shimmery flowers, ribbon, and I sprayed my image with a new product for me, Shimmerz Shimmer Spray. I used the Pearl color and it gave a really nice shimmer to the image. It did make the black ink from the printer run a bit so I went over it after with a black multi-liner. Here is a picture, I hope you can see the shimmer it created.

These are some other fantastic challenges that fit my card
