Pixie Mister

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another easy peasy technique with CS Pixie Powders. I added some water to an empty Mister Bottle and then added a couple of puffs of Plum Twist Pixie Powder. I gave it a little shake to mix and then spritzed over the Paved Mask which was sitting on a piece of Coconut White Card. I used the Phill Martin method in a big box - it really does work! I did get a few splodges on this one but I actually like them. I put it aside to dry. I also misted another piece of Coconut White Card (no mask this time). As usual, the mica doesn't show up on the photos - it really sparkles in real life!

I made a frame using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I added it to my mask background using 3d Foam Tape. I trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Applique Flowers Stamp Set onto my spritzed piece of card using Jet Black Archival and cut it out using the smaller die in the Justrite Vintage Sentiment Tags Dies. I stamped the frame from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and cut it out using the other die in the Vintage Sentiment Tags Dies.

I stamped the flower from the same stamp set onto my spritzed card twice using Jet Black Archival and cut them out using scissors. I glued them on top of each other, offsetting them and added a Craft Consortium Vintage Pearl Charm. I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Orange Blossom Leaves.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Circle Dazzlers to 3 of the corners of the frame.
