Spritzed Candle

Holy moly this Shimmerz Spritz is GOOD STUFF! Have you guessed that the Design Team love the new Shimmerz Spritz?

Here's the first project I made with it - an altered candle. This was a humble glass candle I bought from Michaels craft store for a couple of dollars, but with some patterned paper, a silk rose and some Shimmerz Spritz, it's now a special gift for someone.

Here's now I made it:
  • I attached Graphic 45 patterned paper onto the glass candle with strong sticky tape.
  • I lightly misted the wired ribbon with Babys Breath Spritz, tied it around the candle and attached a stamped, tea-dyed shipping tag.
  • I liberally sprayed Bed of Roses Spritz onto this beautiful silk rose by Prima. It took about 10 minutes to dry.
  • I covered the candle lid with the same patterned paper and attached the rose with foam dimensionals and strong sticky tape.
I could never have achieved this gorgeous, shimmery effect on the rose or ribbon without the Shimmerz Spritz - it would have been impossible with paint, ink or any other medium. I'm looking forward to trying it on lots of different three dimensional objects and large areas of c/stock and paper - it's going to be a lot of fun!

What a great idea! I have so many of "those" kinds of candles. Now I know just what to do with them.
