Day One Sneak Peek

Good Morning!

I want to start today's post by thanking everyone for their congrats and kind comments yesterday. You all are a big part in why blogging so much fun. Thank you!

I stopped in Gina's store yesterday and picked up an interesting item. Have you heard of or used Memories Mist? I know there are other 'mist' products out there but I have not seen this one before. I bought both the silver and gold.
I wasn't sure how to use it so I did something I usually do not do...read the instructions. They were very easy to understand - "shake bottle well to mix up the metallic, hold project 6-8 inches away and spray. I followed the directions using the silver mist and this is the the result.
IRL, it is very sparkly. It was hard to capture that in the picture. I really liked this look and thought it would be great for a background. Although I like this look, I wanted something else for my card so experimented a bit. I got a cotton ball and sprayed the mist on the cotton and sponged it on the black pure luxury cs. Doing this I could control where I wanted the sparkly and how sparkly I wanted it.
Here is a picture of the sponging. I know I'm a tease...giggle giggle...
I tried the mist one other way. I wanted to carry that sparkle through the card but only wanted a light layer of it on the black matting behind the image and the sentiment so this time I held the cs about 12 inches away and misted. This turned out exactly like I wanted, a light layer of sparkle on the cs.
So are you ready to see the whole card?
Today we are giving you a sneak peek of Rupa Shevde's new set, Easter Blessings. This is a beautiful set and you're gonna love it!

I did the watermark technique with the sentiment and part of another image. There is a bit of color on this card other than the black and white. I colored the little flowers and what I think are leaves on the cross with copics, BV31 and G000. I used my quickie glue pen and dazzling diamonds to outline the cross, added ribbon and a button to finish the card.

Hop on over to the other designers to see what they have created using Easter Blessings.

Cindy, Theresa, Erika, Donna, Kurtis, Jessica, Melanie, Emily, Carolyn and Gina.

Have a terrific Tuesday!
