Mom Project - Card #10

This is a really basic card that showcases Stampin' Up!'s products. I used their "Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die," the "Sincere Salutations" stamp set and even added some "Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint" sheen to the card (of course this is not visible in the picture).

To use the shimmer paint as a mist, I took an empty spray bottle, added a mixture of about 30% rubbing alcohol and 70% plain bottled water (maybe 1 Tbs of alcohol and 2 Tbs of water) then shook in about 5 drops of the shimmer paint. Once you shake it REALLY well, it works as a Glimmer Mist very well. Each time you use it you have to shake it - HARD - because the shimmer paint settles. But from one bottle of the shimmer paint, I have a lifetime supply of glimmer mist (unlike Tattered Angels really expensive mists). Any shimmer-y paint can work as a mist using this method --- even acrylic paints! Just remember to add the alcohol so the liquid evaporates on your paper more quickly.
