Make it Mondays - Shimmer Spray

Happy Wednesday! I made a card for this week's Make it Mondays challenge! Yay! It's about making your own shimmer sprays. I made a very subtle one with Hawaiian Shores ink to use on my card:



It is so subtle because I don't own any reinkers yet and had to scrape off some ink from my inkpad. Ha. First I used the spray on the background then I stamped text from the textstyle set with Hawaiian Shores. Before stamping I wiped off a lot of ink with a baby wipe, I wanted it to be subtle, too. The larkspur is stamped with brown pigment ink and I colored the blossoms with that shimmer spray and a brush. My own larkspurs in the garden are growing well, can't wait for them to bloom! And the peonies are about to open any day now! Oh, but enough of this - here is a close-up of the shine:



I know that larkspurs come in that deep, beautiful blue, but I didn't have that color available. Hope you like it nonetheless!

Did you order from the newest release? I just did today because I wanted to wait for another payment to arrive. And now the Seed Packet Die isn't available!!! Doh! Wish I hadn't waited so long. I NEED that die! There are soo many ideas for it in my head already! One for my girl's birthday.

I hope you are having a sunny day! Thanks for visiting and don't forget about my giveaway!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Love this. I hope you can live without that die for a little while. I didn't get it either, but maybe if some birthday money shows up later this summer it will make it into my cart.
