Challenge #203 ~~~ Play Misty For Me

Looking for my Clear it Out blog post scroll down or click HERE.
At Shopping Our Stash we want you to “Play Misty For Me” -- use a mist/spray of some kind. Either store-bought or make your own. This one was a stretch for me as I have only used a spray once, I have three of them at least I didn’t have to go “shopping” or make my own, one of my DT teamies sent me two shimmer sprays one clear shimmer and the other pewter so I used them both.  We are at the cottage for the weekend and I had to pack supplies and hope I packed the “right stuff” and I didn’t do too bad. My image is from Sweet Pea Stamps and it is named Steam Punk Old Lady by Sandra Caldwell.
I grabbed the gears embossing folder as I was thinking it went well with the image, of course I could have brought my cogs punch to use. I had  better get more organized next week. the two embellishments are from my stash. I used both clear and pewter shimmer sprays. I used a cardboard box to spray the layer after I embossed it. I went for a 20 minute walk while it dried, when I came home the cat was in the box, (I can’t see any shimmer on her)
This little embellishment was in the bottom of my tote that I carry my equipment in, and it just fits the theme perfect. I also distressed the layers,it only seemed right that I do it for steam punk.  I wish you could see the shimmer.
When I took the picture the  crystal effects on the monocle was not completely dry, but looks good now.
I am entering this in the progressive challenge at Sweet Pea Stamps on Facebook.
Thanks for stopping by today and dig out your glimmer mist, shimmer sprays and join the challenge.

Yay for gifted mists! I'm so impressed you can take your show on the road each week and still have what you need. I'd be a major FAIL at that effort.

LOVE that monocle! And the cogs are perfect as is that fun embellie. I still don't know how you don't forget half of what you need every time you go!

This is great steam punk work, Barbara! I just love your monacle! Given that you are far from your craft room, your innate creativity truly shines through!

Yep, me too, I'm in awe of you packing what you need to create at the cabin! This card is no exception, and I can absolutely see the shimmery goodness on the back panel!
