Easy Peasey yet fantastic!

After reading Jackie’s post the other dayabout how much she loves the HQ cotton watercolor paper and how she  just sprayed color sprays and inks directly on the watercolor paper I was so intrigued (and I have a ton of the sprays, Memories Mist, Glimmering Mist, and of course, Tattered Angel’s Glimmer mist) that I immediately grabbed a sheet of the HQ cotton Watercolor paper!  I also grabbed one of my favorite background stamps from Hero Arts,  Design Block Flowers, Versamark ink,  and clear embossing powder and stamped and embossed the watercolor paper.  I sprayed the watercolor paper with Mango Lemonade and then lightly sprayed it with Pink Lemonade.  I couldn’t believe how the watercolor paper loved the inks.  I was impressed!  I  gently wiped the ink off the embossed area so that the white below showed thru and sprayed the whole sheet lightly with Tattered Angel’s Gold glimmer mist for that glitzy gold effect that I so  love!  I only wish you could see this in real life!  It is stunning!  And maybe took me oh….2 minutes or so!!  Talk about easy color coordination!  I actually love to make my own background paper so this technique was right up my alley!

The image is a new stamp I just bought from the Paula Best Rubber stamp line colored with copics on Heavenly White 120#.  Used a Glaze pen as you can tell.  Really added dimension to the image.  I had the flower string from somewhere but the colors on this string matched the colors in the image perfectly and quite accidentally!  The ribbon was also some I had in my stash, really wanted to use it but spent the longest time trying to figure out how!!  Then I came across the rivets that came with my Crop-O-Dile and the rest just came together easily.  The card base is Tuscan Sun Brawny RC100. The flowers are some that I made with paperclay and Krafty Lady molds for a couple of cents each.  I have been pulling the glimmer mist out ever since and checked out how the White Grandee textured felt reacted with Glimmer Mist last night and just couldn’t believe just how beautiful a couple of sprays made the White Grandee.  It colored very evenly too, I was worried about splotches and an uneven coloring  but the mist stayed on the top long enough to evenly spread the glimmer mist so when it dried you couldn’t even tell that it has been sprayed, it looked natural and oh so pretty!
