Sprays and Mists for Happy Little Stampers

Happy Thursday folks!

Another quick post before I close the old craft room door for a few days.  It's not exactly tidy in there but who cares .... there's going to be no-one here to see it!!!  Only one more sleep then we're leaving the island for a week of rest and relaxation.

Before I go I've got a little something for the latest CAS Challenge from Happy Little Stampers.  The theme this month is ......

I won't be able to enter next month (shame!) ... seeing as I'm on the DT (whoo hoo!) so here goes .....

Sprays and Mists .... hmmmm ......  not everyone's go to craft stash item but I love them!  and I really should use them more often.  No two pieces will ever turn out the same, and they can be so unpredictable ..... but that's half the fun of using them!!  There must be a knack to them, I just haven't found it yet!

I've used a piece of card from what I call  my 'bit box' ..... we've all got one, a box where we keep all our 'well that didn't turn out quite as I expected' pieces, and you know me, I don't like throwing anything away so mine is getting quite large now.   
So .... I delved deep and came up with this piece of watercolour card that I'd coloured using Brushos and a water spray.

I do love these little pots of magic ...... you never know what you're going to end up with.  
I took a piece of watercolour card, brushed it all over with clean water then added my Brushos ..... Rose Red and Lemon (I think!)
I then spritzed the whole thing with more water and just watched the colours spread.  

I trimmed the piece down to size, edged around it using a Gold pen and then attached it onto a piece of white cardstock.
I added a nice simple die-cut (Prim Poppies from Memory Box) in plain white card ......

and then finished off with a simple sentiment from Penny Black .....

For the inside, I kept it really CAS .... using another of the pretty poppy die cuts ......

and another PB sentiment.

Do you use sprays or mists/ ..... why not enter the challenge.  You can find all the details here.  Go on .... join in the fun.

Well that's about it from me.   Before I go though I'd like to say a big Hello and Welcome to my latest follower ...... the  number's up to 208 now!!!!  Thank you so much ..... all of you ...... for sticking with me, and taking the time to read my ramblings, I do appreciate it you know, and I love reading the comments you leave!  
Oh well ... better go ..... hubby needs help packing his suitcase!!!!  

Cheerio until next time
