Thank you card

At first I didn't think I'd play along with this week's Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday: Make Your Own Spray Mists, because I'm not all that fond of misting. I think it's a lack of control thing-- I'd rather place things where I'd like them, not leave it up to chance (& the odds of a clogged nozzle.)

However, as the week progressed, I thought of a few things I could try with it, so I made three cards using homemade spray mist.

Here's the first one:

I used Papertrey Ink cardstock, stamps (the swirls are from Fabulous Flourishes and the sentiment is from Think Big Favourites #3), Mat Stack #5 die, button & twine. I stamped the flourishes with VersaMark and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I sprayed my homemade spray mist on afterwards and the stamped images resisted the spray.

Thanks for looking!
