A Little Pink Vintage

This card was made with Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette card stock. I used the Vintage Wallpaper EF on Pink Pirouette and Whisper White and sponged on some Crumb Cake ink. The brad is an Antique brad from Stampin' Up!™ I stamped the butterfly from Nature Walk in Crumb Cake. The ribbon is Whisper White taffeta.
I got out my homemade Shimmer spray for this card. Shimmer spray is easy to make. Just fill a small spray bottle with plain old rubbing alcohol and add some Shimmer Paint. How much you ask? My spray bottle holds about 2 oz and I use a small paint brush and add about 3-4 paint brushes full of Shimmer paint. If it isn't shimmery enough then add more paint. Hey, it's not baking it's art! I used Champagne Mist on this card but Frost White works just as well. Make sure you shake well! I love this stuff!

So smart ... love your tip on making your own shimmer spray! Beautiful card! I bought some vintage brads but guess I'm hoarding them. They look so pretty on the cards but I just can't seem to break them out of the case yet.

This is gorgeous. I have the shimmery paint but have not tried it yet. I'll have to try making the spray!
