A new challenge fb site...Mixed Media Monthly Challenge
This month's topic is Spray Inks
This is my entry

A quick 'how to'
Sponge white gesso over the Scalloped Circle Decor Plate.
When dry spray with water, and then Dylusions spray inks (Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange and Bubblegum Pink used here). Dry.
Place stencil (Crafter's Workshop) in centre of Decor Plate and sponge Lightning Black Brilliance ink through.
Ink open Cape Daisies stamp with Lightning Black ink and stamp around the edge of the plate.
Lightly stipple Espresso Adirondak ink around the clock face. Use Alphabet Curlz / Small stamps (please contact me for details) to stamp message with the brown ink. Use the brown and a fan paintbrush to darken the edges of the Decor Plate.
Sponge Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink through sequin waste on to the plate.
 Leave to dry.
Ink the Cape Daisies stamp with Versamark ink and stamp onto the plate, emboss with Stampendous Frantage Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. Continue, using the single Cape Daisy stamp as well, until there is a group of flowers. Sprinkle bits of the embossing enamel in random places and heat from below to emboss.
Place high tack glue in some of the flower centres and sprinkle with  Gold Frantage Crushed Glass Glitter.
The Decor Plates come as a pack of 2, with a hook for wall mounting and a stand for displaying your work on a table.
