Greeting Card Kids for American Ink Swap

I made this for a Swap at our American Ink meeting last weekend. I used my card I made last week and simplified it. Here is a link to that card. I can't afford to do some of my Blogging cards for Swaps with all the brads and extras I put into them.

I used the "Frost White" Shimmer Paint on the embossed main part of the card that is Baja Breeze. Now the trick to make this look perfect is to cut a piece of sponge into a wedge then get some of the shimmer paint onto it. Then squeeze most of the paint back into the bottle because you want the sponge to be kind of dry. Then you start to rub the embossed area lightly and as the sponge gets dryer you rub harder onto the surface. I learned this years ago when painting ceramics, I loved painting animals and I always would end with the dry brushing-sponging technique.
