Best. Move. Ever.

When I first saw this set from Lil' Inker Designs, I knew one needed to come live with me:



Here's the card I made, then I'll explain:


Yesterday, before I put the set away, I decided to play with some of my homemade mists. I had one marked Persimmon, which I assume was made with water + some Distress Ripe Persimmon reinker. I had a piece of white card stock out, plus some remnants from the hexagons I'd cut out when I made this card. I'd saved the "frames", too, so I trimmed one up nice and neat, and put it on top of the white card stock on my craft mat and spritzed away, then dried it with my heat tool. It gave a very cool look, don't you agree?

I liked it enough to try another color on top of it, so I shifted the hexagon frame over, then spritzed the paper again with something marked Heirloom Gold (it's a color of Perfect Pearls). The hexagons are very subtle since they were sprayed over the Persimmon, but they are still there.  I dried that and declared it a success! :)

Next, I stamped the stick figures with Archival Black ink, then contemplated the sentiment. I opted to use a bunch of them together, so I lined them up on my grid paper so they were mostly straight, picked them up together with a big acrylic block, then stamped them with Archival Black.

I mounted the white onto a piece of Hero Arts Blush layering paper, then added a wood veneer heart that I covered with my gold Wink of Stella brush pen.

The Heirloom Gold is kinda shiny, since it's made with Perfect Pearls. You can sorta see that here:


You can also sorta see the offset hexagon frame where I moved it to spray the gold mist. Sorta, maybe.

Now I've finally put this set away, and I'll move on to something else. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
