Make It Monday #15: Make Your Own Spray Mists

I don't have many reinkers...but I did have Hibiscus Burst and Simply Chartreuse...so I went with those colors.  Actually I read ahead about the Blog Hop coming up on PTI on the 25th of the month and it is all about flowers.  I started thinking about what I could do with flowers that might be a bit different.  I decided to put some flowers into the 'Tea Pot' from the Tea for Two set.  Unfortunately the picture doesn't show all the glimmer, but I did spritz the Spring Moss paper with the simply chartreuse and perfect pearls before I embossed it with a cuttlebug folder.  The hibiscus burst edger paper was also sprayed with the reinker and perfect pearls.  For added glimmer, I used a versamark pen and drew over the embellishments on the pot, then added the perfect pearl with the paint brush just like Jennifer did. I also added some to the flowers, but the picture isn't showing all the glimmer.  The bow is from a shiny organza and I used a Tiny Label and stamped "for you" on it.  I think this is a great technique to get a lot of extra shimmer and shine to the paper.  Thank you Jennifer for showing us how to do this with the product we might have on hand!
