Make it Monday - Sweet Peas
Today's post is for papertrey inks Make It Monday challenge.
Jennifer has done a great video on how to use your re-inkers to make a spray mist. In addition to this technique, the video shows some other great information about embossing. I found it very useful.
For my card, I chose to use this old SU ink Cameo Coral and made a coral glimmer mist. I stamped my tag with versamark using sweet peas stamp set. I embossed it with clear embossing power and then sprayed my mist. I added drops of re-inker in the centers of the flower to get this watercolor effect.
It doesn't show well on my photo, but I also sprayed my card base and then put it through my cuttlebug with the library embossing sheet. The embossing works really well when the card stock is damp. I put my tag on a pti green mat and added a ribbon and layer of pearls.
I didn't have a ranger mister but I did have a walmart travel spray container so this worked just fine for my re-inker mist. I always use what I have and generally get good results. Although if I plan to do this with other colors I would probably pick up a few of the ranger mist containers. They are probably pretty reasonably priced.
The video link is below. I highly recommend you watch it. Go ahead and make a card using this technique. Post it with mr. linky and enter the drawing to win a papertrey ink stamp set.
