Remember yesterday's card?  Well, maybe not if you celebrated too much on the 4th of July.  It was a plain, but nice card.

It started off with the card shown in the picture below & then we added all the other items shown:

  • Stampin' Spritzer #126185
  • Shimmer Paint (#116806, #116854 & #116807)
  • Ink Refill (we used Riding Hood Red to compliment the card
  • 91% Isopropryl Alcohol (I don't think the strength matters


Ann poured the alcohol in the Spritzer to a little over half.  (No, I don't think that wine qualifies in this instance).  Then she poured in a little of the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. & shook it really well.  You can always add more, but not less.

Then she added several drops of Riding Hood Red Ink Refill & shook it again.  Now it's time for a test run so we laid the Paper Daisies that we've been saving for just this occasion.  (At least, that's what I've been told!)  We wanted it a bit darker so we added a bit more.

Just remember – you can always add!  That's why we wouldn't start with more than 3/4 of a bottle of alcohol.  Why not water?  Because alcohol dries very quickly & water usually warps your stuff.

So here's how we kicked the card up a notched (& added some So Saffron Paper Buttons made with the Sweet Buttons Embosslit).


So let us know now you like it!
