Shimmer Paint Spray - Almost a Technique Tuesday

I had completely intended to show a tutorial on how to make the shimmy paint spray but apparently I saved the pictures to the unknown abyss. So instead I'll just share how to as well as a card I made for my Husband's Grandmother for her birthday.

If you look closely you will see that the yellow and vanilla cardstock pieces are shimmery. Basically to make a shimmery spray you mix rubbing alcohol with the shimmer paints (I made one for each color) into a small spray bottle. I used the mini sprayers you can get in a 3pk at the "guys" craft store. You only need a few drops to the rubbing alcohol. You will need to shake it up each time you use it because it will settle to the bottom. I do have to give a small warning ... be careful where you spray because my desk, scissors, and cat are now quite shimmery!! Happy Stamping!
