SP and Co DT Wednesday (&CFC31)

Good morning!  Today is DT Wednesday at SP and Co, and I love these big, bold numbers from the set "One Two Three."


I was inspired by this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, which is to use mist.  I tried to channel my inner Karen Baker on this one- I hope I did her justice!

I don't have any misting products, so I turned to my trusty old watercolor set.  (and when I say old, I mean old!  I got the set when I was in middle school, and although I paint quite frequently, I've only had to replace a few of the tubes!)

I always like the look of mist, but have never really tried it 'til now. I always told myself that if I got into misting, I wouldn't use red.  I don't want my projects to look like they have blood splattered all over them, ya know?

Well...after all was said and done....I used red:




I hope it doesn't look too gory!  I knew that with the messiness of the splatter I wanted a hand-drawn image to complement the imperfectness, so I sketched out the poinsettia with a fine-tipped pen.  

I really like how this one came out, even though I was crafting waaaay out of my comfort zone!

PS.  Don't forget that you have until Friday at midnight to link up for the very first Runway Inspired Challenge!

  2. I love sprays and misting. I don't think this looks gory at all. It looks great with the simple black and white.

  3. So pretty, I love the splash of red! I don't think it looks gory, but then again I'm a huge fan of the show Dexter, haha! :)

  5. This looks fabulous! I just can NOT do misting - I don't know how many creations I have tossed due to blobby and/or overmisting!
