Why I have a shimmer brush addiction

Who thinks all water should sparkle?  

(Me!)

Back in May (I'm still catching up) I created this fun card with a turtle in the shimmering blue sea.  


I used a Clear Shimmer Brush that I personally tinted with Peacock & Pacifica Reinkers!  


It got used here for the blue Mason jar and the butterflies.  


 And here!  See the blue plaid teacup?  Shimmer brush! 

Notice the sparkly pink ribbon?  Do we sell pink ribbon?  Nope.  

But we do sell a Bashful pink shimmer brush & white ribbon!

These brushes aren't just for finishing touches.  Use them in place of markers to color your stamped images and your ribbons!  

Grab your favorite darker reinkers. 
I used a mix of Peacock and and Pacifica for my blue shimmer brush and Clover Meadow (similar to Willow but much much older) for a pretty green one.  

I added reinker to clear shimmer brushes that I've used for a year.  They were still half full!  These were my workshop shimmer brushes so they had been used heavily and were still going strong.  Be sure to shake your brushes so the mixing beads rattle before using and enjoy!
