Glimmer mist trial and FAIL------

Hiya folks. I made a "regular" card these past few days and with not having much time at all to work on it I am happy it got done today. My last and final touch seems to be the DOOM of the card.  I used the new "pearl" glimmer mist and I never used it before. I spritz once, twice, three times and then because I still could not see the glimmer I went insane.  How bad do I feel because I made the paper curl :( I hope after more time to dry and a book on top all things will settle. It even made my ATG gun tape peel. Really, thats a lot overboard with the mist.

I will be giving this card to my niece, she will love the purple and that fact that she got a grown up card. She will never care or see that the stamp is  a bit crooked and that the image is as well.  Ahem, not to mention the paper. Good thing my family has kids that love to be treated with handmade items!

See the lovely glitter---errr and my beginning coloring? The silver circles are from a "outline" sticker. I got them in a swap and I wish I used them more.  I got the idea for the one side flourish from Prima products. Do you see how the gems come off the side of the lace? I tried to do that with this project but it is harder than it looks!!
I love this stamp, I find it so funny and I have been using it way too much. I am gonna check "borderline" for my niece :)

  3. You are just hilarious..i love your post...What are you using to color with? I have a few bottles of the mist too..i made this card at Archivers..that was super fun..you use the mist after you've wet emboss a card and it stays in the un-embossed areas..after you wipe it away with paper towels..i think you'd like that. Also the mist looks great on paper flowers and cotton lace.
