Shimmer Paint

Well I started to make a card last night after I got home and to be honest, I was just to tired! But still want to share some flowers I made using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. this is 2 different stamps sets, HCPC2242 Innoscents Flowers 2 and HCPC 2293 Sunflowers 2. Both cut out using Spellbinders Blossoms 2. What I really wanted to share is some thing Becky shared with us at the stamping club the other night. She had bought the Shimmer paint from Stampin Up page 192 in the big book, and added a little to a bottle of body spray and guess what, it shimmers! Smells good too. Anyway, I had bought some and got it that night so came home and mixed some of my own. She said to make sure it wasn't the kind that had oils in it, now what I use came from Wal Mart, you can also use that from Bath & Body. Other than that, who knows???? I did paint some directly on the tips of a few of the flowers and Oh My Stars! I love it. So all those flowers just shimmer all over the place. Okay that's it. It's my Friday so I may come in and make a card or not, anywho, I'll will see yall later!! Have a very blessed day!!!!
