Shimmerz and white Prima flowers

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 bought mine at A Million Memories). 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!

I love Prima! Thanks for the link. They have some gorgeous flowers that I haven't seen yet! I can't find the Shimmerz though at any of the Canadian online stores that I usually buy from. Where do you buy yours? I would love to get some!
