Which Glimmer is Best
Though this patterned paper scrap was already distressed, I blended Distress Inks to pull out the "redness" to compliment the paper flower. Edges of the card base were also inked with the Distress Ink. When choosing a Glimmer Mist note the colour of the glimmer in the bottle and choose one to coordinate with your metal embellishments. For instance, if you have a gold/brass embellishment pick a mist that has gold glimmer base, rather than silver.
Papers: off white cardstock (Prism), patterned (Basic Grey)
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Tea Dye & Aged Mahogany
Accessories: Spellbinder Dahlia, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, brad (stash), Glimmer mist Creme de Chocolat
