Happy Birthday


Happy World Card Making Day!  I've made a CAS card here with a new mister.  Which, in the spirit of laughing at our mistakes, in my first attempt to use it the other day didn't notice which way the spray was going and spritzed red mist all over my messy craft desk-- I thought it reminded me of a scene from Dexter.  There are soooo many fabulous card challenges today and while I would love to sit and play all day, life is not going to allow it (I spent the afternoon at a fabulous Celtic Festival).  So this card works for the Skipping Stones Design WCMD challenge to use one of their stamps and Wee Memories "Use your Fav Technique" and while I'm fairly new at misting, I'm having fun (red splattered desk and all).  And since Simon Says Stamps is trying to reach 1000 entries, here's one more for their grand total.  

Materials: Hero Arts Flower Box Cling, Skipping Stones Grunge sentiment, Smooch Spritz, Versafine black ink, water color pencils, Basic Grey Patterned paper

I watched Dexter all I could on Netflix, wish they would have some current episodes come out. Creepy but good. Your card, on the other hand, is not creepy! Very clever use of mist!

I love this! I especially like that the misting is heavier in one area and then fades as you go out toward the edges. You have inspired me to get my misting supplies out.

This is stunning, Erin! Your misting is incredible and I think you should do it more often, whether it reminds you of Dexter or not. ;)
