New Challenge at Less Is More: Shimmer!


Please click on the photo to make it larger: you'll get a better look of the shimmer!


Hi friends!
One week flew by again and it's time for a new challenge at Less Is More. We have a recipe week ahead of us and we'd like to see CAS cards with shimmer! This week I unfortunately have only one DT card for you but I'm sure the other lovely LIM ladies have several samples for your inspiration. Have a look at their cards and all challenge details HERE. We are very happy to be sponsored by Uniko Studio and to celebrate that I'm using my most favorite Uniko set in my stash called Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum

I'm afraid for one month from here on I'll only have one LIM DT card per challenge: I'll be very sadly parted from my crafting supplies! Yes... It's a tragedy! What will I do all days when I can't craft?!? Well, for most of this time I won't be at home so I think I'll survive. In the end of June I'll be back on my normal card making track. I'm already looking forward to that time... Then I'll be on holidays for 6 weeks! :)


So, my card this week:

I've stamped my flower- leaves cluster with the help of some masking and then colored in the images with Copics. I'm not going to lie, coloring this in took a long time... The chrysanthemum is pretty detailed and I stamped lots of leaves! My shimmer is in the leaves and in the sentiment die cut -I simply used Wink of Stella shimmer pen on top of my Copic coloring. This must be my favorite way to add shimmer to my cards. I couldn't resist using the hidden sentiment die technique again... Love it! I was holding my breath when die cutting my colored panel... It would have been NOT FUN if I would have messed up the die cutting! Luckily all went well and I love the outcome. 

I'd like to enter:
I used my favorite red and green Copics for my coloring... And in general I just love coloring + am at the moment obsessed with the hidden die cut technique!


Thanks for popping by and happy crafting -I can't wait to see all your wonderful shimmer CAS cards!

  1. Wow, this card is an absolute triumph, Nonni! I once coloured this with my Zigs and it took AGES! Loved the result though as it's such a stunning image. Fabulous shading of the leaves and well done for taking the plunge and die cutting your panel after all that hard work, it's gorgeous! xx

  2. Totally agree with Anita, your card is an absolute wonder Nonni ! And I can easily imagine what was your feeling at the moment you die cut it ! Your colouring is just stunning and the shadows you succeed to make give such a depth to your card ! I also love very much this technique but my die words are not big enough so the result is not as beautiful ! A pure masterpiece ! Have a lovely weekend ! xx

  3. Sensational card Nonni! Such incredible colouring skills because it looks like you could just pick that flower off the card (it looks so real). Yes, I can also imagine how long it took you to colour and the nervousness you must have felt when die cutting into it. Well worth it though. Hope you don't miss your crafting stash too much over the next 4 weeks xx
