Shimmer Paint and Alcohol Spray

I love how simple it is to add some shimmery metalic shine to my projects with the new Shimmer Paints.  This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest made by Stamp Your Art Out.

In a spritz bottle, I mixed some rubbing alcohol and a few drops of the Bright Copper shimmer paint.  I lightly spritzed my cardstock and it dry for a few seconds.  The alcohol speeds up the drying.

The sentiment is from the Painted Glass stamp set.  It was heat embossed using copper embossing powder.  The delicate medallion is from the Stained Glass thinlit set and die cut from copper foil paper.  I also added a tiny strip of copper foil paper as a border..  I added a few pearls to dress up the medallion.

This card is the exact same design, but I used a birthday sentiment, also from the same stamp set.
