Mist 'Em Up, Cowgirl!

Welcome to our new challenge-- Glimmer Mist! And this was a challenge for me as it is a fairly new technique for me to be using. I hope you will take the challenge sometime within the next two weeks and take a bottle of Glimmer Mist (GM) to some of your projects.

To start with this week, I used GM on a few simple aspects of my layout. I know this picture is a bit hard to see since I used light paper and a light colored mist, but hopefully you get the idea. I spritzed Creme de Cocoa GM over some stars that I cut out with my Sizzix. Then I carefully removed the stars and ended up with this:

The Creme de Cocoa mist is sooooooooooooo pretty! It is a real light brown with a little bit of a gold sheen to it, though when I sprayed it on some of my embellishments, like the blue stars and brown tag below, it took on almost a coppery color.

I particularly like the GM on the dark brown tag and star, it really stands out and adds just a little extra to my page.

I used the Cowboy paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello Road, matching the theme of that paper to my old fashioned cowgirl pictures of my daughter and I. The whole thing is mounted on Bo Bunny Double Dot Cardstock, though I used the reverse side without the dots, and inked with Colorbox brown ink.

Now it's your turn to get out the mist bottle and mist 'em up! We can't wait to see your creations so make sure you add a link to our challenge by Oct. 31 11:59 EST for your chance to win a great prize from The Beary Scrap!
