Glitter Mist Christmas Card

I am having so much fun with Glitter Mist.  You can't really see the detail of the Glitter Mist in this photo but in person, it SHIMMERS!  It takes an ordinary snowflake and makes it extraordinary.  Glitter Mist is fast becoming one of my favorite techniques.

Recipe for making your own Glitter Mist:

1.  Find an empty spray bottle.
2.  Mix Pearl Paint, Rubbing Alcohol, re-inker of choice (I used Juniper for this card), and prisma glitter in spray bottle.   I put equal parts of alcohol and paint,  a few drops or re-inker and lots of prisma glitter.
3.  Spray background of card, dimensional element, or accent  (in this card I sprayed the snowflake dimensional element) with glitter mist
4.  Let it dry for about 15 minutes and finish card.

Try this technique... you will love it!

Recipe for Card:

Jingle Level 2 Paper
White Daisy Ric Rac
Twilight Ink
Peace On Earth Stamp Set
Glitter Mist (see recipe above)
Snowflake Dimensional Elements

Have fun creating with Glitter Mist!  I would love to see your Glitter Mist Creations!
