I Brake for Bister Shaker cards!

Hello and happy Saturday!
Welcome to my weekly I Brake for Stamps post.

My niece just celebrated her 17th birthday.
Since she's a little older now I wanted to do something pretty, yet still fun.
I think this suits her perfectly.  She's quite mature now yet still very young at heart.

I used a birthday verse from EVERY DAY PHRASES.
Inside the shaker I used the blue and yellow BISTER STAINS.

This is the same blue bister that I used on a card a couple of weeks ago.
As you can see the original card was almost navy blue.  By simply adding more water to the powder I was able to get this teal look.  Add more powder for a darker look...less for lighter shades.  You can also use the stains to create a water color effect.  Pretty cool results for a tiny little container of powder.  And, although the container is tiny the powder lasts SUCH a long time.  It's so potent that you need only a tiny sprinkle to get some pretty grand results.

I mixed the blue bisters with water as you're supposed to.  I treated the yellow a little differently.  I have a shimmer spray that I thought would be interesting to mix with the Bisters.  I was right.  I sprinkled just a tad of the yellow powder into a plastic palette and then sprayed a bit of the spritz into the dish.  I "scooped" up the liquid with my paint brush and splattered it onto the paper.  I really like the look it created.  It's tough to see the metallic look in the photo but it's very cool in person.
