Christmas Village

My stamp-n-play date was yesterday and this is one of the two projects I did! Glenda did an entirely different Christmas card. I tried out the new shimmer paint Stampin Up is carrying in the new mini catalogue. I mixed 10 drops of paint with 1 oz of 70% rubbing alcohol. It sprays great but with my large piece of paper ( I sprayed the large soft suede) it warped it sooo on the smaller pieces (2 soft suede scalloped squares) after I sprayed I put a heavy book on top. I'll redo the card and see if it works on the larger piece of cardstock. IRL is shimmers so nicely! I've never used glimmer mist but I imagine this is what its like, a gentle glitter. I'm thinking that next time I mix up a batch of mist I'll try to find 99% rubbing alcohol, it'll dry faster and perhaps won't warp paper!I did this challenge for the Flourishes challenge "A season that sparkles!" found here.
