You and Sandi certainly make a pair. I'm so impressed with your creativity!

Sage Kimble

Congrats on making blog finds of the day!


What an artistic invention! Very talented lady that you are !!!

Janet Swofford

Oh,I forgot to add that I feel honored to have helped you name this gorgeous technique:-)

Janet Swofford

Oh my word,Carole'Anne! Just when I think you can't out do yourself,you do! This technique and the resulting card are just stunningly beautiful! And I am also wondering if it matters what cardstock you start off with as your base? And since I don't have any shimmer paint ,do you think Lumiere would work?
So where do I start on the turtle card? I just love everything about it. My daughter Rebecca has collected turtles since she was very little ,so I have a soft spot for turtles. This little guy looks like he is swimming along the ocean reefs, thanks to your new background:-) I LOVE the sand and shell details ,too. Perfect embellishments that I NEVER would have thought to use on a card.Simply said,a beautiful piece of art!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing all of your creative talents with me! You have made me a better stamper and I so appreciate your friendship,too!
Inky hugs,

Robin Merriman

Oh, Wow! I was so crazy busy this weekend I totally missed your shout out to me! Thanks so much my friend! I'm glad you loved the card and I'm so glad it inspired you to make this beautiful card too!
What a wonderful new technique and I have to agree with the other poster too that I LOVE your nails! :)
have a wonderful day!


WOW! Does look like Romantic Silk. Another reason to play with the watercolor crayons! It might look nice with a 5th Avenue Rose on it....

I couldn't get in last night to leave a name so the one you have will have to work. I love the background. It looks great as a seascape. Maybe you could get Max to help with some shimmer footprints next time and call it Max's wonder. Heehee!

Chris in CO

Remarkable...What a beautiful technique.

Julie Beaulieu

Instruction et Tableau Merveilleux!!! I am so fortunate to get to see your creations first hand. Running to the craft room to give a try Right Now!! Thank you so much for sharing.

Love this technique! I'm always looking for new ways to use watercolor crayons. Thanks so much.

Becky Jensen

Thank you for sharing your new technique! Your card is lovely!

stunning, just stunning my sis. Wow, the layers of color are just amazing. It really looks like a reef.
You rock, I hope you get rave reviews on this technique.

Congrats on an awesome and beautiful technique Carole'Anne. Now I'm going to have to invest in some shimmer paints so I can give this a try. If you can train Max to help you, let me know; my dog could always offer me an extra paw or two (ha ha)! Thanks for another wonderful tutorial! Cheryl in Reno-Sparks, NV

Chris Hnatiuk

Carole'Anne--what an AWESOME technique and card!!! The watercolour look has so much depth and texture to it with your torn paper masking. I would have never thought to mix the ink and the shimmer paint together to dab on, but it certainly is a key element here! THe "reef" idea was brilliant, as was the addition of your grasses....then adding the "real thing" with your sand and shells--well it's not just a card--it's a work of ART!

Beautiful background, Carole' Anne. I neglect my WC crayons. And I have to admit that I have never used my Shimmer Paints - not yet, that is. This should give me a good reason to use them. What really makes the background WOW is the sponging with the masks. it looks like a scene photographed with a filter. Lovely.



this is just stunning...I absolutely love it. So for us newbie's, did you use watercolor paper? And watercolor pencils?

Kudo's on such a gorgeous card....

And of course, big hugs to max.


What? You mean you're not going to make all of us a gorgeous, one of a kind, extra special work of art? : ) Just kidding. This is fabulous. I think I like this card even better than the first! The sand and grass are awesome!! You don't even need the sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us!


I love this new idea that you invented! I also dont know if anyone else comments on your fingernails but as a nail tech I can honestly say that I look forward just as much to you nails as I do your cards. Is that weird or what!
