Shimmerz and white Prima flowers . . . a perfect match!!

Just a little share for the day . . .

One of my favorite ways to use Shimmerz Spritz is to spray it on white Prima flowers. This allows me to dye the flowers any color I want. When I saw Prima's newest releases -- beautiful white flowers with lots of petals and dimension -- I snapped up several packages. I had no intention of leaving them white. Nooooooooooo way! I had visions of all the beautiful colors of flowers I could create with my Spritz and Shimmerz paints. Here are the white Prima flowers 'before' and 'after':


I first sprayed the flower with Sea Foam Spritz. Then I dipped the edges of the petals in the excess spray (I always place my flower on wax paper or a plastic bag so that the excess Spritz doesn't get absorbed). Finally, I painted the edges of the petals with Tickle-Me-Turquoise Shimmerz paint for a little extra sparkle and contrast. What I love about Spritz and Shimmerz paints is that the colors are so vibrant, yet they are not too overpowering. It's just the perfect amount of color and shimmer!
