Getting Messy

I decided to pull out some stamps, stencils, mists and embossing powders and try out a technique I had in my head.

For my first card, I placed a stencil over a piece of cardstock, pressed an embossing ink pad over the stencil, then sprinkled and heat set with myStampBOX clear embossing powder. I then sprayed the cardstock with red and light blue mist. The colors sort of bled together to make a pinkish color. I wiped the excess mist off with a baby wipe. Next, I stamped a star from the Back to the Basics Set with embossing ink and heat set with myStampBOX silver embossing powder. Although this stamp is not a solid image, when stamping over the embossed cardstock, it pretty much filled in the entire image. I balanced the two stamped stars with another star stamped with burgundy ink on cardstock, then added a sentiment from the  Mention It! Set to the card.

While I had all my supplies out and my hands were covered in ink and mist, I decided to make another card with the same technique but in different order. I stamped one of the borders from the Decorative Strips Set on cardstock, then sprinkled and heat set with myStampBOX silver embossing powder. I then placed a stencil over the cardstock, pressed an embossing ink pad over the stencil, then sprinkled and heat set with myStampBOX clear embossing powder. Next, I sprayed pink and teal mist over the cardstock then wiped away the excess mist with a baby wipe. This combination gave an even stronger purple tint to the cardstock. It also dulled the silver embossing powder a bit too. Finally, for the sentiment, I sprayed some cardstock with the teal and pink mist and let it dry. I then sprayed some pink mist on my craft mat and added a drop of the teal mist to the puddle. I dipped a flower from the Abundant Blossoms Set into the mist and stamped on the misted cardstock. A sentiment from the Mention It! Set was then stamped and heat set with myStampBOX silver embossing powder. I cut out the image, matted it on some pattern paper, and adhered to the card with foam adhesive.
