You've Got This

I finally got some time to play and tried a new technique.

It's one of the techniques that Loll linked to at the

I mixed some re-inker with water in some Stampin' Spritzers
(Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral) and sprayed on a piece of
140 lb. cold press watercolor paper.

When is was dry, I placed a NBUS stencil on top and spritzed with water 
I immediately lifted up the stencil and let the water work for about 15 seconds.
I blotted it with a paper towel and presto, a lovely, subtle, ghosted image!

All that was left was to stamp an image and dress it up and it was done.

The Misti came in really handy for stamping.
I had to stamp several times to get a good image.

Right now I'm enjoying spraying/misting techniques.
My favorite product and technique is Stamping.
I love the variety I can get with stamps and ink.

AWESOME!! Your colours are gorgeous ... just like a beautiful setting sunset behind your flower. Great job with the ghosting technique --- love the dreamy design. And your outline flower is just perfect with that little bit of bling in the center and sequins. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers, Bonnie!! xx
