I really enjoy making my own sprays from Distress Ink Re-inkers and for this layout I mixed some Victorian Velvet with Perfect Pearls in a Ranger mini mister. I like these as you can mix just a small amount and as it has a very fine nozzle results in a more delicate touch!
Once the misting has dried I undo the mister bottle and use the nozzle bit inside to drop small droplets of spray over the top. It is a bit hit and miss but you can always make it lighter by rolling kitchen towel over it immediately to take some of the colour away.
I layered my sprayed card stock onto a larger piece of 12 x 12 having first cut out a border - this allows use of the rest of the paper for flowers giving a more coherent look.
I have used the Tattered Florals die to make the spiky flower, just two layers and made a rolled flower (tutorial on my blog HERE) for the centre. The smaller flowers were made with Donna Salazar's Bitty Blossoms Die - again one of my favourites. I am also enjoying the new Garden Greens and Spring Greenery dies and the beauty of the Garden Greens is that it cuts thick card really well and all it needed was a coat of Picket Fence Distress Crackle.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!
