That was my mantra while making this card. It's been a while since I played along in any challenges, so I was all set to go, desk clean, and fingers itching to start. I decided to use the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays as inspiration.
And I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card. I decided to use poinsettia -ish shaped flowers as a mask and mist around them. I own 3 different mist colours but they're all very light and I wanted something bolder, so I decided to ink up a toothbrush and flick it on to the paper. That was when I first paused, thought "will this even work?...... Uhm...... I'll see" I also worried about how the flower/leaves cutouts were being used for masking. I don't have any removable adhesive and I knew even the smallest bit of tape would ruin the paper so I flattened the flowers as snug against the paper as possible but was all the misting and ink flicking gonna blow them out of place? Uhmmm well I guess I'll see.
I used gold mist first. It's so sparkly when the light hits it at a good angle. Then added blue and purple ink....the flowers didn't even budge!

Lastly, to my loyal readers, the craft show went very well! I had a ton of fun, met some really great people, and made enough money to make it all worth it. I'm already looking forward to doing another one next year.
