Pretty Pretty Princess

H2H Challenge

I am so excited about this week's challenge at H2H.  It's all about pink, bling, glitter and all that girlie stuff. Stop by the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog to see all the cutesy artwork.  My project is inspired by a card I had seen on a blog many weeks ago and I feel awful that I can't remember what the name of it was.  If this looks familiar at all you might let me know. 

I tried a couple of new things for this card.  I made my own "homemade" glimmer mist which I used on the clouds and balloon, and I dyed my ribbon to make a color match.  So how did I do it?  Easy, Internet and YouTube! I did a search for making glimmer mist and found hundreds of variations.  I chose one that used what supplies I had, which was water and acrylic paint, Create-A-Shade pearl paint in my case.  I mixed the water and the paint in a spray bottle and presto, gorgeous glimmer mist.  For the ribbon, I used my waterbrush, CTMH Lilac Mist marker and CTMH spritz cleaner.  I just colored the ribbon with the marker, used the water brush to get it slightly damp, then spritzed it with the cleaner a few times.  I used my hands to bunch it up over and over to work the color in evenly.  WARNING:  You will dye your hands too. 

Supplies: All CTMH unless noted

Paper:  White Daisy Cardstock and Patterned Paper from Daydream

Stamps:  Over The Rainbow (D1426)

Inks:  Black, Lilac Mist, Blush and CTMH markers in Black and Lilac Mist.  "Homemade" glitter mist was made using water and CTMH Create A Shade Pearl Paint (Z1039)

Embellishments:  Black Hemp (Z282), Pink button from stash, Lilac Mist ribbon was dyed using the Lilac Mist marker, waterbrush (1771) and My Acrylix Spritz Cleaner (1778).

Other:  3D Foam Tape (Z1151) and Cuttlebug with embossing folders.
