Misting Mania

Oh how I love misting.

Love, love, love.

It’s so great for adding a hit of color.

It’s fabulous for making something your own.

It makes me feel oh so artsy.

How you seen the new Paper Crafts Stamp It: Techniques issue? Another thing to love, love, love. Life happened and I didn’t get time to submit to that issue but I tell you…it is inspiring me now! So many great ideas!

Having my new issue in hand had the ideas swirling and then, along came Cath’s Moxie Fab World Stamping With Shimmer Sprays Challenge. I couldn’t resist. There still time to play along so why not join me? You know you wanna…

Misted Medallion Silhouette Card

This card features two misted elements. The background was created by stamping the music background onto white cardstock and then spritzing/misting with Viva Pink and Timeless Lilac Glimmer Mist. So pretty! I just let it blend and quickly dry with my heat gun to keep that splotchy, artsy look. The edges of the layer were then sponged with Marmalade Distress Ink to tie the color combo together.

My second misting adventure came in making the sweet rosette. I wanted the paper to really absorb the color for a saturated effect so I die cut the rosette from watercolor paper. It was first sprayed with Timeless Lilac and then I added in some Tiger Lily and Viva Pink. Love how it turned out!

This card actually fits two challenges as I used a silhouette image for the rosette center. This week’s Ways to Use it Challenge is Silhouettes and it’s a great trend.

Supplies: kraft cardstock, twine, Pink Vintage Button by Jenni Bowlin, flower by Prima, Trinket Pins by Maya road, lace by Webster’s Pages, 1.5″ circle punch, Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, Silhouettes stamp, Dictionary Greeting stamp set and Cling Musical Background by Hero Arts, Jet Black Archival Ink by ranger, Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz, Tim Holtz Paper Rosette Die, Viva Pink, Tiger Lily and Timeless Lilac Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels, watercolor paper
