Memories Mist ...


Hello Everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful day!!



Last week a couple friends and I visited a new (to me) stamping store and I purchased some Memories Mist. The lady at the counter was gracious enough to do a couple demos for us with various misting products that they sell ... which gave us a few ideas and helped us decide what product would work best for our needs. I only bought a couple bottles for now until I see if I will actually use them. (I hate to admit how many things I have purchased and NEVER used).




The background panel on this card was created using a Dreamweaver Hibiscus Stencil and two different colors of Memories Mist. After laying my stencil over the dry cardstock, I first spritzed it with Pink Lemonade, secondly with Plum Sake then lastly with Iridescent. I wished I could get a really good camera angle so you can see the "sheen" this card has. That sheen comes from the Memories Mist Iridescent which I sprayed on everything!!!
My base card is SU Purely Pomegranate. I've also matted the main panel with pomegranate and the strip across the bg panel is basic black cardstock with a strip of SU Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched ribbon. I used an EK Success corner punch on the bg panel also. My main panel is a Penny Black hibiscus image which was stamped on Very Vanilla cs using Versafine black ink. Once dry, I spritzed with Iridescent. The butterfly is a punch by Martha Stewart and was also spritzed with Iridescent.
I'm very happy with the results of this card and I'm sure I'll be purchasing more "Mist" type products in the future. What "mist" type products do you use?? Any recommendations / suggestions??? Thanks for stopping by today ... please come back tomorrow when I'll be playing my favorite Friday challenge ... Sharon Johnson's STAMP SIMPLY challenge. See you then!!
