Shimmer Paint with a Stampin’ Spritzer
Shimmer paint lends itself to so many techniques – this one uses Shimmer Paint with a Stampin’ Spritzer and some rubbing alcohol. To create a beautiful shimmery background, all you need to do is mix a few drops of Shimmer Paint with rubbing alcohol (about 2/3 full) in a Stampin’ Spritzer. Be sure to shake the spritzer each time before spraying the mixture on cardstock. For this card, I sprayed Soft Suede cardstock with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol. The pictures don’t show the shimmer but, believe me, it looks amazing!!
