one layer wednesday - shimmer



I can't believe that I let it get to Tuesday without doing the one layer Wednesday challenge. For some reason the "shimmer" challenge had me a little bit stumped, so I sat myself down and had a stern talk with myself and sent myself off to my craft room.... 5 minutes later and wondering what I'd been fussing about, I left with this!
I used a die cut aperture to apply worn lipstick ink and edged with vintage photo, with the mask still in place I stamped the splatters from PaperArtsy hotpicks with versamark and brushed with gold perfect pearls. I then removed the mask and stamped the hotpicks flowers. I finished with a small ribbon (another "embellishment opportunity")

can't see the shimmer?
this should help..
