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.
