Bicycle Friend

As I have said before I love Moxie Fab Blog Challenges - Cath is the hostess with the mostess!

One of the many challenges going on for technique week is Stamping with Shimmer Sprays.  For this challenge I used mists in two ways: 1) misting ribbon, 2) misting an embossed image.

To create the main image I embossed the bicylce in white on patterned paper.  I sprayed blue mist on the bike and then wiped it off to make sure the white really shows through, which adds a fun spotlight to the bike.  I wanted to draw a little more attention to the bike so I used liquid pearls and green glitter to the flowers in the basket.



Supplies:
Paper: Watercolor cardstock (Archiver's); Pool Dot patterned paper (Memory Box)
Ink: Watermark (Versamark)
Stamps: Bicycyle (Hero Arts)
Extras:  Seam binding Ribbon; Detail White embossing powder (SU!); Rose Red (Liquid Pearls); Green Stickles (Ranger Ink); Sky Blue and Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels); Buttermilk Cream mist (Maya Road) alphabet stickers (Making Memories)

Tiffany... this is perfect. I think you are right with the mists w/o shimmer. I would probably like those much better.
