To add some shimmer to the flower you can either spray it with any colored Spritz that you may have in your stash or you can create your own Spritz.  Simply fill a Mini Mister 1/2 full with water and add 1/4 teaspoon of Perfect Pearls to your water.  Shake it up and spritz away.  This will give you a very light shimmer.  If you want more color add a few drops of Tim Holtz Re-Inkers to the Water and Perfect Pearls mix. The more drops you add the more darker your color will be.  Blue Re-inker and Gold Perfect Pearls make a gorgeous combo.

The flower on this card is a little peek into April's Flower of the Month.  Can you guess what flower this is?

If you are local to me or in the Washington area. I will be teaching Flower of the Month classes at several different stores.  See my blog for Dates, Locations and more information on where and how to sign up.

Till next time, Happy Crafting.
