If you don't happen to have anything to make your own, Simon Says Stamp has a wide variety of spritzes and sprays available for purchase. I hear the Heidi Swapp Gold Lamé is heavenly.... You can also buy little Ranger Mini Mister Bottles if you need to.
For today's card, I used a couple of the pre-made color spritzes that I keep on hand. One spray is made with Melon Mambo Reinker and the other is made with Calypso Coral Reinker (I also have a purple, a sea blue and a green). I spritzed a couple of bursts of the pink and the coral onto a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of Stamper's Select White Cardstock. I did a heavier concentration of the pink toward the base and the lighter coral toward the top. I just wanted the color to vary for the light and airy sort of feel. When that was dry, I decided I wanted some gold spatter on it so I put a few drops of water onto the Tibet Gold in my Finetec Metallic Gold Watercolor Paint Palette. After it had softened a bit, I picked it up with my #2 Silver Black Velvet Round Brush and tapped it against my index finger to create the spatter on the background panel. I'm really thinking I need that Heidi Swapp Gold Lamé, *Ü*.
The Cover Plate: Butterfly was a January Release from Papertrey Ink. I cut this from Stamper's Select White Cardstock and inked it up using Rich Razzleberry Ink with a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. Once the ink was dry, I misted it with some Irridescent Gold Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and allowed that to dry, then adhered the die cut to the background panel using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I sprayed a very fine mist from about 12 inches or so above onto the entire card front and then attached it to a Rich Razzleberry top folding A2 Card Base. Anytime I use a darker card base I like to die cut a panel from white cardstock and put it on the inside of the card as I did here.
This was a very quick card to do. In fact, it took a lot longer to write this blog post than it did to make the card. So if you're in a time crunch, this style of card is a great option for you! I finished off the card with a sprinkling of sequins in Deep Fuschia and Metallic Gold from Pretty Pink Posh.
Have a great day, everyone and thanks for stopping by. I'll be back soon with another project.
