Timeless Tuesday...mist it

Today at Timeless Tuesday the hostess is Silke and I love her work and her too of course as she is a real delightful woman. We are to mist the stamp. I didn't read it right at first and thought it was about spritzing...which by the way Mr. Webster doe's not acknowledge as a word. Well misting a stamp is not the easiest thing in the world...yea, I know you can mist it BUT if you mist too much it's looks like it just came out of Niagra Falls without a raincoat and it you mist too little well it's dry and you need to huff and puff on it. I used a lovely leave put out by PSX...and I just realized this is Flourishes challenge and where oh where is my Flourish stamp! So sorry dear friends I goofed again but at least I played. On with the card, deep brown card with a greenish smeared background paper from Basic Grey and a brown bow compliments of both Mike and Bow Easy. The phrase is from Hero Arts...double ouch to Flourishes. Used two of my Spellbinder's die cuts and a bit of gold around my oval. Finished. I am a bad girl for not paying attention to details like this is a Flourish challenge...use their stamps. I do humbly apologize.

I used a non-Flourishes stamp today because it gave a better image than the outlined stamps I tried the first time. I had a couple Niagara Falls moments too :)

I think that because of your connections you will be forgiven :) And you've managed to keep the balance between Niagara Falls and the Sahara desert beautifully. A gorgeous card Pat!

That bow is yummy! What a pretty card ~ you used two of my favorite colors ~ green and brown. Plus I have that PSX stamp, too and it's a classic. I got out my twinkling H2os the other night and painted on some "A Stamp in the Hand" pears, then did the mist thing. It is a delicate operation and you pulled it off beautifully. You know, if you had used the say Flourishes Bleeding Hearts, you wouldn't have had to worry about that raincoat...
