Papertrey Ink - Make It Monday

Sometimes I get lazy and skip all the techniques which require some effort, so it's nice to participate in the Make It Monday with Papertrey Ink and make my own spray mist.

Here's what I did:

My spray mist formula was made with Tsukineko's All Purpose Ink (Vegas Gold), Adirondak Denim Color Wash and rubbing alcohol.  There's quite a bit of gold shimmer in the mist.  I sprayed it onto calligraphy paper, and heat set it.  Then stamped the hot air balloons.  The photo doesn't really show the lovely shimmer, but IRL it's pretty awesome.

I'm pretty motivated now to make more colours!  Maybe a pink mist with some perfect pearls added as well.

Have a great day!

Stamps : Papertrey Ink Up, Up and Away
Paper : October Afternoon
Ink : Versafine Satin Red, Vintage Sepia, Deep Lagoon, Olympia Green
Other : Spellbinders Scalloped Oval, Sakura Pigma Micron 0.5 Sepia, PTI jute twine

Hot air balloons? Very interesting card and the sentiment goes well with it.

Hi Kary!

This is such a lovely card and I can imagine that the shimmer looks great IRL! You did this very good and it was fun to read that you will create your own mist more often! I didn't submit to this one, I really don't use glimmer mist that often on my cards and was a bit 'scared' of it, but maybe I should try it, reading your positive results!!
Wishing you all the best!

Hugs, Wendy

This is gorgeous, Kary! I can't believe you made your own mist. I wouldn't even know where to begin! It looks so gorgeous though, I'm tempting to try it. ;) Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

Wonderful way to highlight the balloons and lovin' the patterned paper!
