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!
