This card has a number of different pearl mists made using perfect pearls, water and reinker in a mini mister. The main image is from Inkadinkado and i inked it up using the Royal Satin Kaleidacolor pad. The circle design is cut from the storybook cartridge on my cricut. all pieces are matted with brushed gold paper from SU.
most folks love the shimmery sprays and so do i but i could not afford the glimmer mists. then i came across this little recipe on T!m Holtz's blog and i have been spraying everything since! It is so inexpensive since the "ingredients" have other uses too.
Fill the mini mister 3/4 up with water. add 10 drops or so of reinker - it does not need to be distress re-inker. Add a pea-sized scoop of perfect pearls. shake really really well.
I always spritz on scratch paper the first few times to get the colored mist flowing. i made four different colors to show here but it is very difficult to truly see the differences. in one i had just gold perfect pearls and water - no reinker. one had eggplant reinker and forever green perfect pearls. one had currant reinker and bronze perfect pearls. the last one was cranberry reinker and pearl perfect pearls.
On my first piece of cardstock i used the eggplant spray - i got a deep purple color with green shimmer in the light. and the currant spray which was a deep red color with a bronze shimmer. the colors blend together well.
Here is another piece i sprayedwith all three colored sprays. For the final card i had one piece sprayed with cranberry and pearl PP - this piece i cut and put through the cuttlebug in one of the new embossing border folders. the other two colored piece i cut in the cricut. the pierced holes were done using my T!m Holtz design ruler.
and here they are! once again the camera doesn't begin to do them justice. but the reinker really gives vibrant good coverage. stay tuned tomorrow to see what i have used these on - I have a new product i am releasing tomorrow....do your skittles want to play dress-up????
AND NOW SOME IMPORTANT stuff - goodies!!!!!! for my first giveaway i have a pack of the gorgeous velvet paper i have been raving about!
