Twinkling H2O Halo

I see so many cards with images that have a hint of blue or yellow around them. No matter what I try, nothing seems to work easy for me. I decided to try my Twinkling H2O and chose the color Blue Ice. I spritzed a lot of water to mute the color a little more then usual and left it alone for 30 seconds. Once it softened up a bit, I used a dry brush and painted along the image. It gave the image a bit of shiny halo around it. I used my cuttlebug to emboss with A2 paisley folder. The ribbon gave it an interesting twist in the ripped corner. In case some of you do not know what a Twinkling H2O is....I describe it as a paste version of Shimmerz. To get the shimmery results, it requires an extra step and that is to soften it up, but I like the results. You can spritz water into it and paint with it directly onto your image or you can paint right on your rubber stamp and stamp your image.
