Hello folks, sorry about my title but I couldn't resist because today sees the start of a new challenge at Make My Monday and Laura's choice of theme is Sprays and Mists :)
My inspiration is a little late because after I made my background paper a few days ago. Mr Mojo decided to go on a long walk and I've only just managed to get something put together.
The background paper didn't come about in the usual way that using mists would as being a rather messy crafter (you should see my lovely blue fingers!), I tend to get it everywhere!
What I did was to spray on to a craft sheet rather than a piece of paper. I used Sticky Fingers Aqua and Delphinium Summer inks. Once I had sprayed on the inks, I then pressed an A5 piece of cartridge paper into the ink to pick up the colour. Because I did it this way, I was able to colour a couple of pieces of paper with the one spraying session. I simply misted the leftover ink with water and ended up with the paler version I used here.
I stamped on some snowflakes from the Tim Holtz reindeer flight set and heat embossed them with white detail powder. I then cut a piece to fit my card blank and sprayed on some Dylusions White Linen to make the paper look even more snowy.
I then die cut an oval panel of cartridge paper with an X Cut nesting die and stamped on the trees from the set with VersaFine Deep Lagoon ink - I only inked the stamp once and then repeatedly stamped to add depth. I then inked around the edge with VersaColor Lapis Lazuli.
I stamped the deer from the set with Memories Creamy Coffee chalk ink and cut the image out. I stamped the sentiment with the same ink and hand cut this to a panel.
I distressed the edges of the background paper before adding it to the card blank and assembled the remaining elements as you see.
Have a great week and stay warm!
