Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today it's my turn to share a project along with a step-by-step tutorial on the ColourArte blog. Please be sure to stop by the ColourArte blog (click HERE) to see my entire project ~ while you're there, please say hi :)

Here's a peek of my project featuring an assortment of beautiful shimmery ColourArte Primary Elements Artists Pigments:
I also have a card to share that was featuring a variety of beautiful ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes:
The background was made using a stencil along with modeling past then painted with the Silks Acrylic Glazes listed below: 

 For the sentiment, I used a Tim Holtz sticker and embellished with a trio of flowers as well as die cut foliage:
Here's a look at the three different shades of Silks Acrylic Glazes that I used:
 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Scrap Africa challenge:
 For color inspiration, I joined along with the Sparkle & Shine Challenge featuring Pretty Posh Aquamarine and Crystal sequins:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to stop by the ColourArte blog and check out my project. While your there, take a look around at all the wonderful project tutorials shared by the other DT members.Be Sweet :)

Now onto the card: I bet it would make your day if you could only see some of the faces of your followers when they see your projects! You know, when the jaw just automatically drops or making sounds like ahhhh!
