WPlus9 April Release Day 4

Thursday, April 9, 2015

Sweet Gelato is the perfect bright, vibrant pink.  My mom loves this color.  Anytime I sit down to make her a card I reach for this color.  Now it's available in a Spray Mist, along with several other great colors!  There are so many great techniques for spray mists.  You can create your own brush pen using an aqua pen or by refilling an empty brush pen, like I plan to do with the Shimmer Spray Mist.  Use them to color embossing paste, use them to create a watercolor background, use them with stencils, drip color on to create splatters.....endless!
 For my card today I have used two techniques. I started by die cutting some white cardstock with the large stitched rounded rectangle from the Love Mom Layers die collection.  I cut two circles from the same collection and stamped sentiments from the Love Mom stamp set.  This set would coordinate well with Strictly Sentiments 4, another Mother's Day stamp set. Onto each circle I adhered hearts that were die cut from the Stitched Heart Border die.  The hearts were cut from watercolor paper.  I added water to the paper before dripping Sweet Gelato and Bloomsberry Spray Mist onto it.  I let the water move and blend the color on the hearts.

Here's a closer look at the Spray Mists

 When they were dry, I adhered the hearts to the circles using foam tape.  Once the circles were adhered to the card front, I added some splatters from the same colors of spray mist and accented it with a few sequins. Finally, the card front is adhered to a Ballet Slippers card base.
 Thanks so much for visiting!
