PTI August Blog Hop + SAF2013: homemade mists

I combined Papertrey's Blog Hop inspiration colours and sketch with the homemade mists from Stamp-A-Faire 2013.  I made a pale purple mist using Fresh Silver Lilac ink combined with water and Perfect Pearls in Pearl.  The resuts were a shimmery lavender mist. 
So here's my card using all the elements:
I used the Circles cover plate as a mask and misted a white piece of card stock.  This was a lot of fun - I am definitely going to be making some more mists!! 

I then cut out a circle and added some Mini Blooms and leaves stamped with Versafine Black Onyx.  I added the Botanical Silhouettes sentiment using Navy ink from Fresh as my Enchanted Evening.
 Here's a close up with the misted layer - in person it has a gorgeous sheen to it.
The shot above also shows all the foam dots I used to pop up the circle and then the flowers and leaves.  Lots of dimension for this card.
