A Grateful heart

Hello all my lovelies! Kristie Taylor here with another Art anthology journey for you!

Today I am using a brand spanking new product that will come out at CHA, its called

Minx Shimmering inks and they are so yummy and beautiful!

They have gorgeous vivid colors and beautiful shimmer and they are so much fun to play with!

The inks are fluid enough to move freely, but have the perfect amount of viscosity so that they can be moved and blended to create subtle or stunning combinations of color.

Here is my finished canvas:
