Sunday Stampers Week 196 - Misty

Good Morning Sunday Stampers, the sun is shining here so I feel quite motivated today.  His Lordship and I are still recovering after having a horrible virus.  If there was a coughing competition we would surely win!

The challenge today is 'Misty'.  I do not have a lot of mists but I put some mica powder into a spritzer bottle, shook it up - and spritzed.  The stamp is my current favourite from Crafty Individuals and I have used a favourite technique too.  I spritzed some old dictionary pages in red and in blue, stamped and cut out the balloon and stuck it down in alternating colours, to give a relief effect.  I have gone off honeycombe paper a bit because it is a flat colour.  Once the tag was assembled I spritzed the whole tag again in red mist, distressed the edges in worn lipstick and black soot distress ink, added a journey tag, some ribbon and Bob's your uncle.

I really enjoyed getting messy.  Apologies, my photography does not improve,  but hope you like the result.  I always appreciate comments, so please do leave me one.  Have a lovely day out there in blogland.  

I have also entered this into Fashionable Stamping Challenges ( - bingo using the  diagonal line of metal distress and             vintage.                                                                                                                                                   .                                                                                                   Also entered into Patties Creations Design Challenge
