It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's title is Play Misty For Me, and we'd like you to use a mist or spray of some kind on your project.
I don't know about you, but I have a small collection of sprays and mists I've amassed over the years. I don't go out and buy ALL THE COLORS like some people, but I get one or two in my favorite shades to try. Most of them are collecting dust on my shelves.
This led me to realize I could just make my own when I needed them, and I have a small collection of mini misters that contain my experiments. I've made some from Gelatos, from reinkers, and from Perfect Pearls. I think the Perfect Pearl one is my favorite, as it adds some shimmer to anything you spray it on.
Anyway, here's my card, then I'll explain:
This card is about my fourth attempt. I started with some purchased sprays, but they failed me. I actually made a few card fronts, but even after several hours, the ink hadn't dried, so those cards and card parts are toast, as are my fingers.
For this card, I went to my home-made sprays. There are three here: one made from a Spearmint Gelato, one made with Distress Peacock Feathers reinker, and one made with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl powder. Both the Spearmint and Peacock Feathers have some Perfect Pearl in them, so they shimmer. In theory, so does the gold, but I had so little of it left, it's difficult to see. You may just need to believe me on that one.
I sprayed the Spearmint and Peacock Feathers mists onto a piece of Distress Water Color paper, then added a few spritzes of the gold. Then I dried it with my heat tool.
The rest of the card is from left-overs. I had a piece of SU Poppy Parade out, so I used it to die-cut the two words from my Winnie & Walter Big, Bold, and You Cutaways. I also cut the words from a scrap of fun foam. You can see it peeking out from under the red card stock.
So, got sprays? Why not dig one out and use it, then come over and play at SOS this week!? We'd love to see what you make!
Thanks for stopping by!
