Colored Pearl Mist Technique Page

I did promise you a new technique page this week. It's not only new, but it's BRAND new! It is a technique I came up with and had a couple of other demonstrators test it out and they loved it!!

You need a few things to do this technique. First you want the Stampin' Up! "White Frost" ink. Then get some card stock, ink refill (color of your choice) some distilled water and a spray mist bottle. You want this bottle to spray out a fine mist not a big splat of water. It will ruin your card stock.

You will mix the white frost ink and water together with some distilled water and shake it all up. The White Frost ink does settle to the bottom so you need to shake it up each time before you use it.

For these flowers on my notebook I crinkled up the card stock, straightened it out and crinkled it up again. After straightening it out I punched out my flowers. You can punch out any theme you are working with. I chose flowers because I wanted to add them to a notebook. Once they were punched out I sprayed them and set them aside to dry. The ink doesn't take long to dry. It was all dry by the time I was ready to put them on top of the notebook.

Notice the center of the flowers? It's the crocheted "Flourette" and I misted it as well. The mist didn't make the flower stiff at all and it has a color tint to it and a sparkle from the White Frost ink. It's SO pretty! Click on the photo for a closer view. You can see the sparkle. And best thing about it, it doesn't come off on your fingers or your work! You won't be wearing sparkle doing this technique!

I used the Sizzlet for the leaf and the words came from the "Teacher's Pet" set. I'm pretty sure I bought that set just for those two words!!

You can use this technique on many projects. The recipe will be included in the 3rd set of technique pages. I have two more pages to do and that set will be complete. I wanted to be done with them by the end of the month but that doesn't look like it's going to happen. I will make a sincere effort to get one done next week and one the following and the set will be complete.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

It looks like antique silk. That is what I would call this technique. Antique silk. Or old organza. Better name it and claim it quick.

Love this looks! I have to agree with the earlier comment - it looks like organza!

I can't wait to get your email saying the next set of technique pages is ready! YAY!
