I Get Misty

We had an hour to fill between dinner and bed, and my 7 year old said-'Let's do crafting' and I know what that means... He loves to grab my box of spray inks and use as many as possible!

This is no job for flimsy cardstock, so I chopped up an empty cornflakes box . And while he was drenching his with as much ink as he could, this is what I made.

I used two colours of distress ink pads, sprayed with water, then stamped with Paper Artsy JOFY stamps. Then I used Perfect Pearls Gold spray and finally, stamped with a circular 'happy birthday ' stamp (origin unknown).

Luckily I'd finished this when my son vigorously shook a turquoise Cosmic Shimmer spray whose lid (apparently) was not fully screwed on....

He's fast asleep now and our clothes are soaking in the sink and hopefully the Cosmic Shimmer will come out....
