I am a sparkly dirty girl....and I have a TUTORIAL for you!!!!

HI Stampers!

I know it seems like I fell off the face of the blogosphere...but I haven't, really :) I am getting ready for the Christmas Card Stamp Camp among other things ;)

I have to be super quick today.....but I do have a tutorial.

I am going to show you how to use your shimmer paint from the Holiday Mini Catalog and make your own shimmer mist. Trust me.....when you use it once, you will be shimmering everything....I mean everything!!

Here are the supplies you need:
rubbing alcohol, small fine mist spray bottle, and shimmer paint.
Shake up your shimmer paint. Take an empty fine mist spray bottle and pour a little bit in.

Fill the rest of the way with rubbing alcohol....and shake....shake some more...keep shaking.... :)

Here is a card I made this morning with my shimmer spray:

It's hard to see any shimmer in the picture, but here is a closer look at some shimmer goodness:I even stamped the inside today:
Sorry....I can't go into extreme detail this morning - have to get the little one from school very soon - but I wanted to give you the shimmer spray tutorial.
It would make my day if you left some love here in the comment section....let me know what you think of the shimmer spray idea :)

Oooooh, can't wait to see it up close and personal. Your creations always look so much better in person. Photographs just don't do them justice! Paris

I've seen this technique popping up on many blogs. I have the champagne and frost white paints and I haven't tried this technique yet. So, what am I waiting for? Thanks for sharing this idea. I love your blog and check it daily.

Sweet... I tried this before, but to no avail, however, I have rubbing alcohol and I'll try it this way! Thanks for sharing (your card is awesome btw!)
