Smooch Painting

This morning I tried painting with the Smooch Spritz.  Again - I'm using the suggestions from the January Stampin' Success.  I sprayed some of the Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz into an empty brad container and for this first card I used water-colour paper, and an aqua painter to apply the spritz to the image.  I love how it makes the flower shimmer.  And - just to keep with the theme, I spritzed one of the crocheted flowers - it's very subtle, but you can see the glimmer on the thread (in person).

I've used the Mojo Monday sketch for this card (however, I left the card rectangular instead of square or round.  I also used the challenge from SUO Challenges to use a favourite item from the Occasions Mini.  I must say I am enjoying this Smooch Spritz and I love the pleated satin ribbon.  I have discovered, however, that if you are wanting an image to straddle the ribbon, you need to stack two dimensionals together so that the image remains flat, and not bent over the ribbon.

Here is a second card, using the same two challenges, but for the image, I used regular Whisper White card stock and a blender pen to "paint" on the Smooch Spritz.  The card also includes another new favourite - I think these little buttons are adorable - I love the designs!

On the weekend I used the Lace Ribbon Border Punch to help create this background design with the Blushing Bride Spritz.  For the Chocolate Covered Strawberries I coloured the chocolate with marker and then added Crystal Effects to gloss it up.  The tops of the strawberries have the new Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.  The strawberries have been raised up with dimensionals - but the stem is on the little white base.

I'm still doing some experimenting with this spritz. Fun, Fun, Fun.  
Done for the day though - hoping my hubby and I can go out to dinner for my birthday this evening.  Hope you have something wonderful planned for your evening - or sometime this week.

Thanks for stopping by -

So nice to see someone using the smooch spritz in such a creative way! I'm rather "smooch spritz" challenged... so when I see others using it successfully, I think maybe some day there will be hope for me yet!
