Getting Misty

Good morning! I have been playing with my Glimmer Mists a lot lately. I only have 4 bottles, but they are getting a work out. I was inspired by the challenge over at Use Your Stuff last week, especially Joy's card where she made a mask with her Silhouette and then used Glimmer Mist on it. I have been dying to try that! I found a gate cut that I liked and cut it out at 5" square. It was hard weeding out some of the pieces where the design swirls, but I took my time and it was worth it. I used a repositionable spray adhesive to hold it on to the light orange-yellow card stock and them misted it with GM Coffee Shop. Once it dried, I distressed and inked the edges of that piece, as well as the orange piece with Memento Tuxedo Black. The stickers are Miss Elizabeth that I have had forever. The bling is Imaginence iRock candy. The flower and brad were in my stash, too. I loved this technique and now I want to try it on a layout! Have a great day!
