Color Throwdown #82 & Fall To Layout # 81

Another lazy Sunday for me today! I ended up sleeping in till 12:30! It was fantastic. I only woke up because Jamie woke me up. I've been trying to clear out a bunch of the random scraps I have laying on my table. I don't have a great system to store DSP scraps so they just end up sitting on my desk. I also have a bunch of card stock that's been cut that I "file" on my desk. A few nights ago I was hoping to participate in this week's Color Queen challenge, so I cut up 2 cards and decided to bling them up with some shimmer mist I made. The first card I used Platinum shimmer paint and the next card I used Frost White shimmer paint. So the first card picture is my take on Clean & Simple's Fall to Layout #81 and Color Throwdown challenge #82. I was in such a mindset to use up the two scraps of Night of Navy that I used that instead of Not Quite Navy. And I don't have any DSP in Ruby Red so I cheated yet again and used Real Red DSP. Hopefully I don't get my hand slapped! 

Here's what I did with the other half of my Night of Navy card stock with the Platinum shimmer mist. You  might not be able to see it but I got to use my Liquid Pearls again! This time I figured out what went wrong with the last time I used it. When it comes out, it sort of looks like a pile of poop or ice cream swirl so you're supposed to tap the paper to round it out. Being totally foolish I tapped it upside down and wondered why the heck it wasn't working. Well that only made it MORE poop/ice cream swirl like. You're supposed to hit it from the BOTTOM of the paper! So this time worked out better. Have a great Sunday!
