I bought these LuminArte' paints about a year ago at a rubber stamp show. I had great aspirations of making shimmery, shinny projects after seeing the demo. I brought them home, used them once, didn't like how the project turned out and put them away.
They caught my eye again over the weekend and I decided to try them again. I painted the solid heart (with Hot Cinnamon) from the Love and Luck set (Kitchen Sink stamps) and then gently misted it with water. I stamped it onto Colonial White card stock and I am so pleased with the results!!! I got a beautiful, bright, shimmery, shiny heart! Woo hoo! I used "always" from Never At A Loss For Words (also Kitchen Sink stamps) and inked it up with Chocolate.
The Vineyard Berry mat around the heart needed something. It was too plain. I inked up my Cocoa chalk pad and did 2nd generation stamping with the larger swirly stem from the Love and Luck set. I love how it turned out! I felt like it made the mat look like it had a texture to it. :) A little bamboo ribbon finished it off. The perfect card to send for Valentines day.
