Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, SSCC5 Branch Out

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Oh - I'm so excited, because it's my turn to host the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC34 today - wahoooooo!!!

I'm challenging you to add some *Misting* to your card/project!!!

There is a wonderful variety to achieve different misting looks.....here are some ideas - you ink the stamp, mist with water, then stamp. You can decide if you want your stamp mist image to be the background, focal image, accent element, or all three. We would love to see what you create!!!

Here are two links to SCS tutorials - Misting with Markers and Misting with Alcohol Markers - just in case you like to run with these ideas.....!?!

For my card I used the *Misting with Markers* technique as this is one of my favorite stampin' techniques :)!!! Need to get inspired...check out these cards and this post.

My card layout is from the C4C3 Sketch.





















First I added the panel of Melon Mambo DP to my card base. I decided to add a couple scored lines to my card base as well.

Next I colored straight onto the Spring Ephemerals image using the Melon Mambo and Old Olive Markers. Then I used my little Misting Bottle and sprayed some water over the image and stamped it straight onto my White CS - voila !!!

Quick tip...you can convert your old Stamp Cleaning Bottles into a Misting Sprayer!!!!

I hope you will try this technique and play along with us?!? I can't wait to stop by and see your creations!!!

Don't forget to stop by Betty, Cindy and Kimberly's blog for their take on this challenge!!!

****************************************

I was in a stampin' mood and created a second card for you!!! This one is for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - SSCC5. The Challenge is to make a *Fall Color* card/project!!!

I used the same layout from the C4C3 Sketch, but this time I made it an all SUO card!!!





















These are the SU Sets I used - *Branch Out* ,*Classic Stripes* BG and *Sweet Little Sentiments*.

The colors are - Whisper White, Really Rust.

The tree and the little add ons were inked in Chocolate Chip. The leaves were inked with the retired Stampin' Pad Spectrum - Pumpkin Patch. The Really Rust CS panel was stamped in the same color.

At the end I added the Polka Dot Dusty Durango Ribbon as it matches the Really Rust color perfectly!!!

Oh yeahhh - did you see the tiny little Silver Pearl...??? Well - I couldn't help myself - *wink*!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today....have a great day!!!
