Monochrome Thanks

I have made this card in approximately 10 minutes which would have to be a ‘world‘ record for me!  I desperately wanted to join the Less Is More Challenge this week as I suffer with ink phobia (I’m a real Gemini… not fond of getting my hands dirty) and I wanted to push those boundaries a little wider (plus I’m a sucker for one layer cards).  I have always loved the ‘spritzy shimmery’ look and I have bought these fun little items but never used them.  So today was my first Glimmer Mist trial and I love it!   I just want to know, do you ever really get to control the spray?  Because it was definitely in control today and so I worked around it!

Thanks - Detail

Supplies;  Paper:  Smooth White Cardstock.  Ink:  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Pink Taffy (sounds good enough to eat!), Memento – Rose Bud.  Stamps:  Autumn Leaves – Fine & Dandy, Paper Smooches – Sentiment Sampler.   Accessories:  Fiskars Stamp Press, Color Catcher (cool spray box), Heat tool, Prima Pearls.

  1. Gorgeous porgeous Therese….love the pink pop! The GM spray…controlling it??… huh!…. let me know if you find out how….wild stuff it is, total mind of its own 😉

  2. The website seems to be playing up as I can’t see any cards here atm!…however I did see a glimpse earlier via my email and the card looked super, loving the pink, excellent card Therese:O) Viv xx

  3. I’ve never used one of those sprays myself, so I can’t give you advice, but I can give you kudo’s for a lovely card!!

  4. Haven’t tried Glimmer Mist yet but may have to now. This is gorgeous and the Paper Smooches sentiment goes perfectly with those flowers. 🙂

  5. Lovely Therese! Did consider glimmer mists myself but then ended up doing something else! 🙂 Great control on the sprays too! LOVE those little pearls! 🙂

  6. Hee hee! No, you can’t control the mist (or at least not any way I know of besides masking)! I love the color. [BTW, don’t try misting in red….it just looks creepy :)] I love the misting. I love the design. WOW!

  7. Ugh, I just got a mental picture of misting in red…ewwww~! I haven’t found a way to control it yet, but it works nicely if you spray a piece that you’ll use for paper-piecing 🙂 Love how you worked with it, it makes a great backsplash of colour here. I don’t typically like getting messy either, (not counting piles of clutter…) so when I use GM I get a newspaper & do it in another room 😉

  8. Hey I’m a gemini too so that explains my dislike of anything messy too!
    Love the spritzed pink, great backgroung for the flowers 🙂
