Big Copper Hello


Sometimes my photography is astonishingly bad. This is one such case. The colors on this card are rich and deep, not pale and washed out! I used a new to me product called Memories Mist, this is Green Tea. Memories Mist is a richly pigmented dye ink spray. It is similar to the more familiar Glimmer Mist, except it does not shimmer, and the colors are opaque, not transparent. I embossed these stamps in Copper on Confetti Cream & watercolor cardstock, then sprayed with MM. You can see the quite dramatic change by looking at the card base, it's Confetti. The MM come with a matching chalk ink pad, so you get another way to apply color. I love chalk inks and this pad seems as good to me as any I've used.

These stamps, and the MM are from Creative Play Stamps. The set is called Big Hello.
