Some fun techniques with Lindy's Stamp gang mists!

Hi friends and fellow crafters,
This is Hussena here and this time it's my turn to share some fun techniques using the Lindy's sprays which is also our Product of the Month..As you all know,Pallavi has already shared a detailed review about what the Lindy's sprays are all about..They mainly come in four forms..One is the 'Starbursts',second is the 'Moonshadow',the 'Glimmer Spritz' and the Magcial's which is a powder form..The techniques I am sharing with you are really simple ones..But they do give some beautiful results..This is just to show you what different things you can do with your sprays besides using it in Mixed Media where you mix with the background to create your projects.
1. Emboss Resist.
For this technique,first take a piece of Cardstock,preferably water-color paper and distress it using any Distress ink of your choice..                                              
After you distress it,dry it completely using a heat tool or you can let it air-dry..Then,using a background stamp and the Versamark Embossing ink stamp on the distressed piece.                                                    
Then,sprinkle the embossing powder over the inked area and heat emboss it using your heat tool.
Then,choose the Lindy mist of your choice and spray completely over the embossed piece giving it a good coverage and wipe off the extra droplets and then using the same color distress ink which you had used earlier (In my case Scattered Straw),distress your panel again and you'll notice a beautiful background which also has a very beautiful shimmer to it!                                                                   
Here are the different background's I have created using this technique :-                                                     
And the close-up of these panels..Can you see hot they shine when the light hits it ? :-                                         
2.Next technique,'Coloring your flower's using the Lindy's sprays'.

Take any color of the starbursts spray and spritz some of it in your palette...Then take any paper flower of your choice and using your paint brush color your flower's front and back...When it dries you will notice that not only the flower's are vibrant in color but they also have a dazzling shimmer to it..For those who love all things glitzy,they should totally try this :)

3. And the third technique I am sharing is 'How to color your ribbon' 

This is pretty simple ,just take your seam-binding ribbon,spritz some water on it to wet it,then scrunch it up and spray it liberally with  the Lindy starburst spray of your choice..You will instantly get a bright ribbon to match with your project as this dries really quickly and again it has a shimmer base to it                                 

Finally,ending my post with a tag I have made using all the 3 techniques that I have shared..I know the layout of this tag is quite similar to the one I had shared earlier..But right now,this is what I could come up with...  I 
promise I will come up with something new and interesting the next time round! :)
