spray it

Hello everyone. Hopefully one of these days, I'll have more time to stamp and then I'll post more here, too. Today, the ways to use it challenge on Splitcoast was to spray on your card. I actually used two different types of spray. I have been pushing myself to use more of my designer paper, so I started with that. I found a piece I wanted to work with that was light enough to stamp on. Then, using my cuttlebug and a butterfly die, I made a butterfly stencil. I used my color mister with a really rust marker to spritz color over the stencil. That tool works better for just a little misting. My hand got really tired - lol. Then leaving the stencil in place, I stamped the swirl from priceless in night of navy ink on the butterfly.

The flowers I used is a new stamp that I got from Cornish Heritage Farms called modern lily. I colored it with markers (brocade blue and always artichoke) and spritzed it with water before stamping. I did this three times. Then I used the sentiment from embrace life and stamped it a number of times randomly in night of navy. I distressed and sponged the edges of the dp, chocolate chip and really rust layers.

I then added the layered photo corner punches & brads, and word window punches with eyelets & natural hemp. The main panel is popped up with mounting tape.

stamps: priceless, embrace life (SU), modern lily (CHF)
ink: chocolate chip, really rust, brocade blue, always artichoke, night of navy
paper: chocolate chip, really rust, night of navy, dp (from a stack)
other: cuttlebug, cb butterfly die, color mister, water spritzer, photo corner punch, brads, piercing tool, word window punch, crop-a-dile, eyelets, natural hemp, distressing tool, sponge, mounting tape

I'm so glad you stopped by.
