Shimmer Spray Backgrounds

This is one of those techniques where you just can't see the effect on the computer. A similar effect to Glimmer Mists but you have the advantage of using the 36 colour range of the Distress Re-inkers and the whole range of Perfect Pearls to mix and match to your heart's content. I sprayed mine onto ivory, buff and black card stock and the colours are amazing! Love having multiple uses for products, re-inkers and perfect pearls can be used several ways and it makes having all the colours that much more necessary......well okay, in my little world anyway. ;-)

"Stylish"... (Broken China re-inker & Turquoise Perfect Pearls). Another twist to this one is to use white embossing powder first before doing the spray thing as the embossing will act as a resist.


"Forbidden"... (Brushed Corduroy re-inker & Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls)


"Melancholy"... (Weathered Wood re-inker & Pewter Perfect Pearls)


"Falsetto"... (Brushed Corduroy re-inker & Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls)


More of these samples to come.

Here's the last couple of Distressed Coloured Gloss Card atc's from the last class.

I so agree with the versitality of distress reinkers and perfect pearls. It's great to see what combinations others come up with. I love the weathered wood and pewter!
