A quick Maya mist stamping technique!!

I just love any technique that's quick and easy and that's exactly what this technique is!! I was using a piece of cardstock as my base piece for a layout and I wanted to add a little color and interest. I first tried a little mist sprayed from the bottle, but it just didn't give the right effect I wanted, so I turned the piece of cardstock over and thought about painting on it - but I HATE waiting for the paint to dry! I looked around my paint tools and I saw a piece of bubble wrap that I had used on a previous layout and wondered how it would work if I used my Maya mist on it to stamp? Well, let me tell you it worked like a charm and was dry instantly!! And no mess at all either!! Here's what I did!

First I spritzed the bubble wrap with tangerine Maya mist

Then I simply stamped the middle of the cardstock with it!
And here's the layout I made using the cardstock!
That's our pumpkin we carved this year...LOL!! I used the Cosmo Cricket Matilda line to make this - all of which can be found in the YSS store, as well as Maya mists! And don't forget that you can use the coupon code NOVEMBER2010 to receive 20% off of your entire order in the store!! Have fun creating!!
