Shimmering Resist Seashells

And here's another card featuring yet another current Technique Junkies newsletter technique called Shimmering Resist. It's the blue panel with flourishes and shells and irl it has a soft pearl shimmer over the entire piece!

The shells are from a 4-piece set by Hero Arts and the flourishes are by Autumn Leaves, Swirls V set. The Discover stamp is from the Stampin' Up! set titled Handbill Headlines, and the Cheesecloth background is from SU also.

All the dark blue ink is SU's Buckaroo Blue, edged right from the pad onto the tag and background panel. For the rest of the background panel, I used the BB to stamp the flourishes, a shells-with-labels panel from Stampa Rosa, and then stamped over all with second generation SU's Bliss Blue on a wavy stripe background stamp from All Night Media.

I stamped flourishes on a BB scrap to place behind the word tag, and then mounted this to textured green cs. I used an oval punch for the ribbon holes and then tied some SU blue ribbon onto the green sheer polka dot (from Michael's).

Thanks for checking in!
