I tried to create some pretty invitations for my daughters baptism. I really struggled with this one because I wanted the card to be mostly white and simple, but still pretty and elegant. I think that I was finally able to create the card that I intended. I was so happy with the final results but so very disappointed in the pictures. I tried taking pictures at different times of day with different lights, no lights, every which way I could imagine but I could not get one shot that showed of the simple beauty of the card. (I took 109 pictures and these are the 3 best, thank goodness for digital cameras!) The card was made using the shimmery white cardstock and sprayed with 5 complete coats of shimmer paint spray. I would spray them all wait a minute for them to dry before spraying them again. The cards really shimmered!
Shot #1 Colors closest to real life Shot#2 Shows a little bit of the sparkle. (The card REALLY sparkles in real life) Shot #3 This is the way that most of the pictures turned out because there was so much shimmer paint on the cardstock. I guess it was picking up the color in the paint instead of the shimmer although the card still looks completely white in person.
