Shimmery Pattern Pines

This is another CASEd card from Andrea Walford. I am doing a Technique Class and doing Andrea's 5 Shimmer Paint Techniques and adding one of my own. The card below is my technique #2 - tinting shimmer paint with reinker and daubing it direct to stamp.

Stamps: Pattern Pines, Christmas Classics
Ink: Old Olive, Basic Black
Paper: Merry Moments DSP, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White cardstock
Other: Playground buttons, Red Gingham ribbon, Frost White Shimmer Paint (mixed with Old Olive Classic ink)
I also used Andrea's idea of Faux Thread in the buttons - cut a small strip of matching cardstock and "thread" it through the button holes. Attach to the back with a mini glue dot. It works great, and so much easier to use than thread, and it matches too. The W White and Merry Moments DSP are sponged with Old Olive ink.
Thanks so much for looking and go check out Andrea's website, she has some great stuff there, and the ideas abound all the time.
