On this card, I dabbed Distress Inks directly on the rubber, misted the stamp with Homemade Perfect Pearls Glimmer Mist (Post 11 above), let the water sit a few second before stamping. The shimmer on the flowers is subtle.

Arghhh. Tip: Label your bottle of Perfect Pearl Glimmer Mists in CAPITAL letters, so you don't grab it when you want plain water.

In a recent class I took, the instructor suggested gluing a matching pearl to the top of the glimmer mist to distinguish it from plain water.

Excellent tip, Ingrid! Thanks. I will do that.

My first mistake was seeing that the water level in the spray bottle was low, so I went and filled it with more water -- then noticed that I had watered down the Pearl Mist! So I set it to the side. Later I grabbed it for a sympathy card. Since the Pearls are very watered down, I imagine the recipients won't even notice it.

Imagine the possibilities for this as a background. Homemade Perfect Pearls Glimmer Spray (#11 above) sprayed on Glossy Cardstock and heated with heat tool.

Would it need a finish coating of some sort Deb; or is it pretty permanent just after heat drying?

There are also a few videos over on YouTube by Jennifer McGuire on Perfect Pearls techniques. You can find them by doing a search on YouTube using the words: Thinking Inking. She has a couple/few different series of these video classes--great stuff.
