Hello Everybody! and Happy Friday!
I'd like to extend a Welcome to our new Followers that joined this week! Thank you!
I have to say I am pretty proud of myself---each blog entry has been about Halloween for the month of October! I wasn't sure if I could do it--but as fast as the end of October is approaching--I was able to! Yay!
For these cards I used Tattered Angels small scale Stencils that I bought at the Scrapbook Expo back in May. It looks like you can still buy them...just Google! They are called Glimmer Screens.
Also, I used the Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist. (Love it!)
So for my first card I used repositionable glue and centered my pumpkin stencil on my card (the blank cards I get at Michael's.)
I have a box set up where I spray my projects. I line it with paper towels so I can capture some of the off spray for another project. You could easily put paper also.
So I first spray with a yellow Tattered Angels (it's best to go from lightest color to darkest).
Then I "rub" off the excess using a paper towel. You can also blot, so it depends what look you are going for.
By accident I picked up the yellow again. So I will rub off the excess again. I learned that is sort of intensified the color. Yay!
Here I added the orange mist and rubbed off the extra.
Now the card is wet-even after removing the excess. I allow it to dry for a few minutes (depends on how saturated the paper is). Then I remove my pumpkin. Do you see how it is curling at the bottom? I put it under a heavy book so it will flatten out. And my card is all done! Just put a sentiment on the inside!
Here is another card I did using the spider web stencil.
What else did I learn from my first card? A little mist got on the inside. It's not a terrible thing, but to prevent that from happening again, I put a piece of paper in between the front and back of my card. The paper will turn out pretty from the sprayings!
This time I used yellow, orange, red, and a blue color. The blue I did lightly. It's cool to see the different colors layer. You can see where I rubbed the extra.
The web is a bit challenging to rub.
So I blot.
Here is the finished card without the spider web. And this is a nice picture showing the different colors.
Until next time my friends, keep misting!
