CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 31

Yippee!  it's my birthday today! And ....yes, Virgina, you are now 20, 30, 40, 50 ! 
I will have a blog post about the winners from random drawing in my next post--coming up soon
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
But first, we must take care of business! It's Friday and time to play our CAS-ual Fridays!
This week's challenge is to use MIST. Please use misting product or technique
Misting Options:
• Use pre-made misting products available at your local or on-line retailer.
• Create spray mist using a mix of re-inkers and water squirted through a spray bottle.
• Create opaque splatters with a mix of acrylic paint and water flicked off a paintbrush.
• Add fine water droplets to your background of distress inked paper.
• Utilize an airbrush system or marker misting tool
• Channel your inner child and spray ink or paint from a brush onto paper by blowing through a straw 


LOTS of possibilities, huh?
Our sponsor: The Sweet Stamp Shop 
 Being part of the DT, we were generously provided by the Sweet Stamp Shop a set to use in this project. I received this Scootin' By to use and I was so excited to mist it up....  
I miss you
I did some masking, yes, masking. I stamped the scooter on a post-it note and then cut it out. Then I placed the paper in a box and sprayed the entire card stock with the masking of the scooter on top. After the spraying, I stamped the scooter image in fire Brick red. Add the border, twines and sentiment details....that's it! 


I hope this will help you get those misting bottles out and start spraying :) Please link up your card by Dec. 14, Wednesday, midnight Eastern Time to CAS-ual Fridays


I will be back with the big 5-0 birthday post! Don't go far!
