We've been having a fair amount of misty mornings just recently so this week's Challenge over at CHF seems fitting - Mini Misters! I held out on buying these for ages but bought a pack in a closing down sale a couple of months ago and I love them!
For this card, I made my own 'glimmer mist'. Now don't get me wrong, Glimmer Mists are great but those bottles are quite big really, aren't they? One of the great things about the Ranger Mini Misters is that you can mix up a small quantity of something so you don't get much wastage and you don't have 99.9% of a bottle left at the end of a project that will sit gathering dust until next time.
I added a shot of Spiced Marmalade reinker and a teeny tiny scoop of Gold Perfect Pearls to one mister and topped up with water. I used Fired Brick and Copper Perfect Pearls in the other. I embossed the Fiery Florals with clear embossing powder and then sprayed with the orange mix over most of it then sprayed again with the red to shade deeply down to bottom right. Fun! Of course you can't really see the glimmer here but you can imagine for me, OK? I love the way this kind of embossing resists ink so I added some Spanish Script in Fired Brick for textural interest, too and just wiped over with a facial tissue to take the ink off the embossed areas.
I just love these Scrapblock™ stamps! Where a regular backgrounder means you can do up to 4.5" across, these are 6" square so a 5" x 5" card like this is no problem!
