Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes + An Option of Something Dangly!

Good Morning!
This week's Challenge over at PAPERTAKE WEEKLY is Anything Goes + An Option of Something Dangly! So a nice and simple Challenge for you all! Incaase your wondering I didn't add the option as there wasn't really anywhere to put it lol

On this card I have tried a technique that I have NEVER done before and is definitely not my usual style, which you will probably be able to tell and I bet you will think I need a bit more practise lol I had seen a few cards and projects around using Mist Sprays and after winning a collection of them earlier this year I still hadn't got around to trying them so I decided to last weekend! I have made my own Design Paper and the Image was stamped using the same mix of inks.

This fits the Challenges at:
SIMON SAYS STAMP - ANYTHING GOES
BUNNY ZOES CRAFTS - ANYTHING CHRISTMAS WITH PEARLS
(I have used Dew Drops I hope these count? if not please delete my entry)
CRAFTY CARDMAKERS - HEAT EMBOSSING




I thought I'd take a photo of the left over design paper so you could see it properly. I sprayed a selection of inks on a glass mat and then wiped a sheet of A4 Cardstock through it and dried with a Heat Gun. I then added some Glimmer Mist to give it some shone and stamped a Magnolia snowflake randomly across it and embossed using White & Silver Peal Embossing Folders.


Colourcraft Mist Sprays - Violet, Emerald Green, Turquoise
