Happy Wednesday my blogging friends! Today I wanted to give you an update on the wonderful, beautiful and stunning Viva Decor 3D paints available at SCACD. I have colored several different things with them, metal, canvas, paper flowers and have even painted clouds with them. I have tried to take close up pictures to capture the color and the shimmer for you.

                                                      This is red on a paper flower.


This is purple.
This is moss green, light green, walnut and silver. The last leaf is walnut with some gold dabbed on top. 

This is gold.

This is rose. 

And these are some samples I did of color combos on some Prima resist canvas.  


And also a cloud background I did using the blue. I hope you can see the shimmer in it. 



I also wanted to show you the difference between copics and Shinhan Touch Twin markers. My friend Lisa was asking me about them and I have to say, in my opinion, they are equally as good. SCACD also carries them in groups of 3 coordinating colors so you get a dark, medium and light shade that correspond so it is a great way to get started plus they are less expensive than copics. I know they are also introducing refills soon too. 

And finally, I have a card that I used some of the Shinhan markers on and I wanted to show you the versatility of different papers. These are Glitz Joyeux Noel papers but I wanted to go for a fall color scheme. I have also used one of the Uptown Girls, Peeking out window stamps for my image. 
The flower on my card is from the flower grab bag available at SCACD also. I have also added some glimmer to the flowers with a spica glitter pen although it doesn't show up on the card but adds a little something irl.  So lots of goodies for you to check out and with Christmas on its way they would be great for cards or on your wish list!

Hi Amanda. I'm so sorry I have not been around in a while. I am busy catching up in blogland and visiting my lovely friends. Firstly I love your new profile pic, you look beautiful hun. Do hope you, Sinbad & Lucy are keeping well.
Thank you for sharing this post with us and showing the beautiful effects of the Viva 3D paints. They look stunning on the flowers and leaf's. I love how you have experimented with the sky and clouds, the paints look so lush. Your card is lovely too. I have not seen those pens before but look almost identical to the Copic's. Good that they work the same and for a lot less money. Will have to keep an eye out for them. Will be back to visit again reall soon lovely. Take care. Hugs Clare xxx
