SSS Monday Challenge - Spritz & Spray

Hi Everyone! Today I made a quick and simple card but still has a hint of challenge. I used my Dylusions ink sprays to quickly color some flowers for a card. Sometimes we need something quick but we want it to look like we spent a lot of time on it and this is just the ticket. There are so many things you can do with sprays, you can spritz them, use them to color in images, and even stamp with them. Yes, you read that right, stamp with them. Join in the challenge and have some fun and, hey, you could win a $50 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp so it's a win/win situation! Find all the details by clicking on the icon below:

Here is my quick an easy spray/spritz card:

Start with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of watercolor paper. I used Strathmore cold press watercolor paper. 

Stamp flowers onto smooth side of the watercolor paper. I used my Misti tool to get a complete image. It's difficult to get a complete image on watercolor paper so the Misti is a wonderful tool to accomplish a complete, crisp image.

I want my flowers to appear as some are behind others, so I stamped all the flower images onto Inkadinkado stamping mask paper. There is no need for the images to be complete or crisp.

Now I cut all of the flowers out.

I peel off the backing from the mask paper from the two largest flowers and adhere them to the images on my watercolor paper.

I place the smaller flowers on the panel where I want them and use my Misti again to get the images clean and crisp onto the watercolor paper.

After stamping the rest of the flowers is complete, I apply all the other masked flowers on the panel to their coordinating flowers but leave one flower exposed. Next, I sprayed the exposed flower with Dylusions ink spray. For this technique, do NOT spray the watercolor paper with water, it should remain dry before spritzing. One spritz is all you need.

Continue the process by covering the flower that is sprayed with its masked image and unmask another flower. There should only be one exposed flower at a time. Choose a different color for each flower giving it one spritz of the Dylusions ink spray.

Your project will look like a mess at this point but when you peel the masked flowers off, a beautiful, colorful arrangement of flowers will appear.

Isn't that cool! The different colors of each flower with the spray effect around them, to me, is so cool.

Now it's time to add a sentiment. I used Simon Says Stamp's "Sending" die cut and cut that out of black cardstock and adhered that with Ranger Multi Matte Medium. Then I used my Misti to stamp the "You Love & Hugs" sentiment underneath the die cut. 

I adhered my card panel onto an 5x7 black cardstock panel and adhered that to my card and, viola! here is my completed card again.

I hope you enjoyed this spray/spritz card and get out those ink sprays and have a try at it. Thanks for coming by!
