Hope your week has been great!
I have been in the depths of potty training :(
I will survive!
Today over at Cut It Up we are starting a new challenge
all about using Mist on your projects.
I have never used a glimmer mist before,
but a couple of months ago I found one
on sale at Hobby Lobby for $2
so I snagged it up to use for this challenge.
Use A Mist
$20 Gift Certificate
Okay, so as I said I have never used a mist before.
I didn't know what to expect or even what to do with it :)
The color of my mist was red,
so I was afraid it was going to look like blood spatter
(I watch too many crime shows, I guess)
So I used some red cardstock to try it out on first,
it was a mess to spray!
The mist blended into the red cardstock,
but the gold glitter/shimmer showed up really well.
So that's how I decided the color palette of my card.
I found some really pretty flowered paper
that matched the jewel tones I was going for.
It was from a 6x6 designer paper pad I picked up at Wal-Mart.
I decided a craft base card would work well,
and thought I would try to mist that cardstock, too.
It turned out fine and didn't look like blood spatter either :)
Just so you know, I did try in on white cardstock,
it was a NO GO!
So I layered the misted strips of cardstock at the bottom of the card
and cut out this beautiful branch from Art Philosophy.
I used gold shimmery cardstock and it looks fabulous!
Unfortunately, the camera can only capture so much :(
So when the card was all said and done,
I was trying to decide what sentiment to use.
Turns out this makes for a perfect sympathy card.
I know these types of cards aren't the funnest to make,
but this really felt like one to me.
The sentiment comes from Craftin' Desert Divas
"Simply Said" stamp set, which I love.
So there you have it, my first attempt at Mist.
(It might be my only attempt)
I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge,
and hopefully I will learn some tips and tricks
to working with this stuff :)
Thanks for checkin' in!!!
