Eye Shadow, Hairspray....on a card


Today's Try a New Technique challlenge on Splitcoaststampers was to make a shimmery card using Perfect Pearls and water ...squirting in on cardstock to create a shimmery background. Well, I had to improvise as I have no Perfect Pearls, or Pearl Ex...but I do have old eyeshadow. So I scraped off some eyeshadow and mixed it with some hairspray and added Real Red ink (SU!)...and sprayed away. It turned out quite shimmery...you just can't tell from the photo. details:

Stamps: Spring Solitude;
Paper: Making Memories- Noteworthy patterned paper, so saffron, GP white, Basic Black ;
Ink: Staz on Jet Black ;
Accessories: acrylic flower, black silk flower, bling, hairspray, organza ribbon ;
Techniques: glimmer spray background
