While you're out, hop over to Toodles & Binks - they have a new blog and are offering candy! AAAANNNNDDDD, Danielle is giving away a Bind-it-All! So get to hoppin' (after you're done here, that is)!
I have two cards for you today! I just joined the Unity Kit of the Month, and then they issued a challenge to us all to use the kit - I have been BUSY, but haven't had time to post until now!
The first card could be a baby card or an all occasion card depending on the message inside. The camera didn't pick up the shine of the Shimmerz I used to paint the clouds and rainbows, so you'll have to use your imagination. ;o)
I only have bold Shimmerz colors, so I'll share a trick with you that I use often. When I need a color I don't have, I reach for my color wheel. It helps know what colors to mix to get the color I want. But when I need a lighter tint (say, pastels like this card) all I need to do is add white. In this case, it's Angel Wings Shimmerz. If you use enough of it, white will be the color you see when I dries. But if you only apply a very thin coat it dries almost transparent. And if you mix it with any color, you get a lighter tint. So even though I don't have any pastel colors, I can create my own!

The second one was QUICK to make because the challenge called for 3 layers or less and 3 colors or less. I relied on pop dots and the dew drops to give the card more dimension and pop than just the matted image. I also used a tutorial from Gina K's Stamp TV to create wood grain paper.
