Have you ever made your own glimmer mist??? It is SSSSOOOO much fun!!!! The new Stampin' Spritzers it is SUPER easy!!! I have to admit, I have other misters as they are commonly called. I had to try these when Stampin' Up started carrying them in the new catalog. These are 10X better than the other ones I had used before. I love to make my own mists......so I have used them a lot. Other brands are smaller therefor don't hold as much. The other brands also seem to clog a lot. I have yet to clog a Stampin' Up spritzer!!!! That makes it an awesome buy in my book!!! And at $2.95 for two!!! Very reasonable!!!! I only bought two to try but I will be getting more to keep on hand. I made on glimmer mist with what I had on hand, there are several ways to make it. I used glimmer, water, and craft reinker. You don't have to use craft- it is just what I had on hand so I used it. Any reinker will work. Shimmer paint, reinker and 70% rubbing alcohol works wonderful as well!!!
Okay back to the project...I stamped my You're Amazing stamp in versamark ink and embossed in black. Then I sprayed it with my glimmer mist!! I forgot to tell you, I used Red Riding Hood ink which matches the paper pack!! You could make this in any color!! Then I cut the image out using the Apothecary Accents Framelits (another GREAT set!!). This was my starting point for my second take on my card!
My first take was this :
I am much happier with my second take on this:
More layers, a darker base, and a little ribbon and shimmer!!!....much better to me!!! What do you think....do you like number 1 or number 2 better???? Leave me a comment!!!
