Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire: Mixing Mists to Match and August Blog Hop

OK, so I'm kind of stamped out!  I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire from yesterday and today's blog hop.  I've combined two challenges cause I'm tired!
 These are the colors and sketch I chose for the blog hop because I had the royal velvet reinker to work with for the mixing mists to match challenge.

Nichole gave the recipe to make a mist which was 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol and about 75 drops of the reinker.  I only did about 50 drops.  I don't have any of this color so I don't know how intense it should be, but I think it was fine.

 I wanted to use this circle cover plate as a mask and spray the mist over it and use the negative piece, but it just didn't look right.  So I decided to use the mask since the color was so pretty.  Then I just went about assembling my card.  As I said, I don't have any PTI colors, so I just matched them to SU
 colors as best as I could. 

I've had fun doing all these challenges.  I hope to try more of them later in the week.  School starts (for me) on Thursday with staff development and then again next Tuesday.  Kids come back next Wednesday.  Where did the summer go?  Sigh...

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful negative effect for your pretty design, Lisa. So, it's back to work already!!:) Brad says it feels like we had a summer this year. We haven't had rain for quite some time and our landscaping/seeding was complete Fri. The landscaper called last night to ask us to water today, but it started raining a beautiful gentle rain and it's getting done naturally:). All the best with your preparatory week.
