Though it doesn’t look exactly like the palette I had to work with what I had.
Years ago when I was teaching online companies would send me samples of products to try.
These and about 20 other colors are what I have left from Angelwings Ent. (aka Luminarte) Twinkling H2O.
I wish they were still available as they are still good…and believe me this was when my kids were small and they are in their 40’s now.
They are a shimmering watercolor paint.
For the challenge I stamped part of the My Favorite Things “Magical Mandala Background” stamp with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.
Next I partial painted it with cranberry and blue flame of the twinkling H2O.
Once completely dryI applied Wink of Stella to the open white parts.
Next I stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things “Brushstroke Expressions” with VersaFine onyx black ink and then colored over it with a gold gel pen.
This I applied to a white card stock base card.


  1. Arlene this is so rich and such a delight to the eyes - my Twinkling H2O's are still going strong too - 20 or so years on! They were a great investment.

  2. I wish I some of those Twinkling H2Os. It's probably good for my wallet that they're no longer available - LOL! Seriously, you've created a a beautiful card here. I love the mandala in the corner; very nice design. Thanks for joining us this week at CC&S!

  3. That mandala is lovely, and I bet it's shimmery gorgeous in real life! Thanks for sharing your card with us at CC&S! :)
