Make It Monday Challenge #15
This week's task for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge is to make your own spray mist (details here).
I haven't yet jumped on the spray mist bandwagon. I only own three reinkers. I don't have any of the pearly powder stuff. I *do* have a Tim Holtz mister or two laying around. What the heck, I thought, I'll give it a try. I knew I wanted the "mist" to have a metallic effect if at all possible, so I used the only metallic reinker I have, one called Amber Satin. And you know what? It worked. After I got over my panic that I had sprayed too much and permanently warped my paper I mean, it worked. (Flattening out after drying proved no problem.) I just may try this 'ole trick again--or actually invest in a "real" spray mist, LOL!
You can actually see the metallic-y finish in the first photo pretty well, I think, but I added a close up shot too. I sprayed Mr. Frog, the pennant banner, and the left-hand of the two patterned papers. This is actually a birthday card for a grown woman. When is Boy Basics: Frog Hop appropriate for an adult woman? When your small group has the frog as its unofficial mascot, and group members give major props for anything frog-related, LOL!
