Twinkling H20s and Lumiere Paint

Playing with one of the techniques from Dion Dior's class "Mastering Twinks". 
Painted a solid pansy stamp with Sunset Gold Lumiere paint and stamped onto watercolor paper. Painted the pansy center stamp with Indigo Lumiere paint, stamped in the center and let dry.

 Used a mixture of blue and purple Twinkling H20s as a wash over the stamped image. Wipe the wash off the paint. The acrylic Lumiere paint acts as a resist.
Also used a toothbrush to pick up yellow Twinkling H20 and splattered over the card.
 Used a thin black Sharpie marker to outline the stamped image.
 Tried to take a close up to show off the shimmer of the Twinkling H20s. Doesn't show well in the photo.
Mounted watercolor paper on to black paper, then on to gold card stock and then on to a black dotted card.

I have a lot to learn with this technique still. But my Mom will enjoy this card. (Mother's Day is coming)
