Saturated Canary Challenge #19

I had so much fun making this card!  It is for the Saturated Canary Challenge # 19: Anything Goes.  

I decided to really get inky and messy on the background. I made my first Tim Holtz inspired tag. I made my own glimmer spray with perfect pearls and  I used actual glitter too.  I finally cleaned up my workspace last week enough to really have a space to do some messy work.

I found the cool Tim Holtz Alterations honeycomb embossing folder last week at AC Moore and decided to run a tag through in it.  Then I sponged on some of the new Tim Holtz Spring Distress Ink Colors.   Then I got crazy and spirtzed the whole thing with water a few times and blotted it with paper towels. I applied a final spritz of Turquoise glimmer mist and then sprayed the whole thing with my perfect pearls shimmer concoction at the end.   Once dried I decided to stamp a butterfly stamp in ScrapPerfect glue and then adhere some super fine glitter to the image.  Finally I used a memory box die cut from 3M Post It Craft Paper  over the edge and then distressed some bits on my card.  For the sentiment I used the glue again with the glitter for the word Dream.  This card was so fun and messy to make!  Truly anything and everything goes on this one.  Stamping, DigiStamping, Embossing, Sponging, Spritzing, Oh My!
