Make It Monday #15 Part II

Okay I couldn't resist. I'm having so much fun with the spray mists! And later this week I might even have a scrapbook page or two using them as well. :)
For this card I did something a little different. Instead of spraying the background I sprayed the stamped image keeping the olive green (Close To My Heart) toward the bottom with the leaves and the sweet blush (Papertrey Ink) and plum pudding (Papertrey Ink) up toward the top by the flowers. I stamped the larkspur from Year of Flowers: Larkspur (Papertrey Ink) on watercolor paper with archival black ink (Close To My Heart). Heat set the ink, then sprayed the mists. I took a waterpen and added a little plum pudding to the flowers to darken them up a little. Then I mounted the panel on plum pudding cardstock, inked the edges with fresh snow ink and mounted it on the card front. I also rounded all the corners. That's it. I kept trying to add something more to the card and decided the main panel was visually interesting enough.

It's really hard to get a good picture of the sheen on this card, so the colors in this photo are really funky, but the sparkles are there to show you how the main panel just shines.

Thanks for visiting!
