Glimmer Mist...using CTMH Products

I know that everyone loves to stay on top of all the new goodies out there. Here is a fabulous way to create some Custom Glimmer mist and coordinating with the 60 colors Close To My Heart already offers, embellishments, stamps, stickease and more and more... won't your pages just come alive!

To Create "CTMH Glimmer Mist" simply mix 50/50 rubbing alcohol and our Create-a-shade Pearl Paint in a small spritzer. I have used our spritzer for cleaning stamps. Simply empty, wash out and let dry ahead of time. Then add as much re-inker of your choice until the desired color is reached.

Adding Alcohol in place of water gives you the advantage of it evaporating quickly. FYI: The water based solution will take longer to dry.

Simply place whatever you want to CTMH Glimmer in a box (it keeps the spray contained and less mess) use a "sweeping" spray (lightly move your hand back and forth while spraying (no globs or heavy spray areas this way). Anything can be misted... paper, flowers, dimensional elements, use masks - circles, stamps, flowers, recycled items - just allow your piece to dry... Have fun creating - the possibilities are endless..

FYI: you want to start with lighter colors first as they will show up, then follow with darker... remember you can always darken papers, but lighten - NOT!
