Wednesday Stamper


As "shiny" was the challenge today at Wednesday Stamper, I created a tag using a technique Tim Holtz showed on his blog. It called for mixing distress ink from a reinker as well as radiant pearls and some water in a spray bottle and then spraying it directly onto your paper. The result is this shiny background.
I stamped my background with a StampinUp stamp. The image is an RAK from Jacqueline that I recently received from her.

Very pretty. Could you give the recipe for the misting solution? Couldn't easily search Tim's blog. Thanks for sharing.
