Simply B Challenges: Spritz, Paint & Mask

Welcome to the newest Simply B Stamps challenge! This one was SO up my alley! I really hope you’ll play along. This month we challenge you to….
We want to see you get out your sprays, mists, masks or paints to make your project!  Let's get messy!
Totally fun, right??? My fingers were pretty well inked by the time I finished this card. Just the way I like it! It makes me feel like I’ve really done something cool. And I hope you’ll agree!

I used the lovely Romance Grace from the Valentine Steampunk collection (not to bee confused with the Teen Scene Steampunk Valentine collection).

I colored her with watercolor markers and Copics…then I got inky. I dug out some Glimmer Screens and sprays from Tattered Angels, chalk, ink pads, and Stickles. Plus some pearls and cogs.

There are a ton of layers here…I hope you can see the image that I actually put on top of Grace. I used a compass with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist. Subtle, but just what I needed to give the focal point a little extra oomph.

The banner and sentiment are also from Tattered Angels.  I held my cogs on with Stickles. Please click on any of the photos to see it bigger. You miss some of the details with the pictures being tiny.
So, you want to play along, don’t cha??? I know you do! Head on over to the SBS Blog for all of the rules, and find out who our winners are from last month. Plus, you will also get to see what the rest of the DT created, which is always a treat! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!!!
