Stamps and Mist!

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

Stamps and mists (color washes, etc) are two products that we can always use more often! Color sprays and stamps are also a great combination. You could emboss or stamp an image and spray over it. Use mist to ‘ink’ a stamp. Apply mist color with a paintbrush to a stamped image... so many possibilities! This week, we want to see a project that features at least one stamp, and one mist or color wash/spray.

I was inspired to play with the lovely layering abilities of the Dylusions products for my project this week!
To start with, I have selected these lovely paints...
Then, using my round ink blending tool, I simply made some dots...

And then stenciled over them, once they were dry. Look at how they layer! Love it!

Then, I simply stamped these lovely hearts, using some Dylusions Mist in White...

Then, a little pink Dylusions paint was layered on top using the blending tool again. Just look at how that yellow stenciling is still peeking through! Fabulous!

So, I just repeated all of the above steps over and over again until I had this...

Then, my favorite little sections got cut into some squares to embellish my layout...

Likey so!
I used some of the other parts of that inky fun play to layer behind my photo as well...

I just love how a little stitching and layering really turns these inky scraps into some lovely embellishments!
And now it's your turn to go get misty and stampy! Then...
