Something shiny?

Hello there, hope you're having a good day? Lovely and shiny Cosmic Shimmer is what we've been playing with at the Craft Barn and I've made a card
It's lovely and shiny. To make my card I put lots of newspaper over the floor and standing over my shiny paper I lightly sprayed three colours, two chalk misters and Ancient Copper Cosmic shimmer.
When it was dry I stamped the Tim Holtz Papillons and then stamped again one of the butterflies onto Acetate with stazon. Cut it out and painted the ancient copper on the reverse side to protect it from wear and tear, hope you like, TTFN Gay x

Lots more examples from the Craft Barn, 
I used
Tim Holtz Stamps
the Sentiment is  from Bathing Beauties, Crafty Secrets stamps
Cosmic Shimmer, and Chalk Mists

Super Card! I love that it's shiny and who would have thought you had to stand to spray - Humf! The copper colour behind the butterfly (to protect)really made it pop off the card, well done....again!
