little gift box *Shimmerz*

When I came back from our vacation (which was absolutely perfect!),
there was a lovely surprise waiting for me.
Finally my package with the new Shimmerz has arrived!!!
Oh my....so many gorgeous colors from the new Shimmerz product: INKLINGZ.
You only need to activate the paints with water and the fun can begin!
Today I had the time to play with them and they are so great to work with!
What better way to showcase the colors by making a little gift box decorated with all the new paints.

I randomly applied the paints and added some water to let them run a little.
The lock and the metal feet got a coat of gesso first
 and then one layer with the Inklingz-metal: tarnished treasure.
These gorgeous metal feet are from a Dutch online store: Scrapunlimited.
You can find these and many other beautiful embellishments here.

For this project I used the following paints:
Inklingz-pearl: Beets me
Giddy about green
Pugnacious purple
Coral reef

Inklingz-gold: Blue my mind
French twist

Inklingz-metal: tarnished treasure

Here is the top view:

And some close-ups:
Found some tulle flowers and twigs in matching colors.
These beauties come from 13Arts.
You can find these flowers and twigs here.

The lace flowers and the paper flowers were painted with the paints as well.
I found the lace flowers online.

Playing with lots of colors for the background.
Added some small glass beads for more texture.
Toned it all down a bit by applying some gesso.

Hope you all liked my todays post and you will be inspired to try the new Inklingz!
You will love them, I'm sure!!
If you place a Shimmerz order make sure you add my name during check out

Color your day!
