Stamp and Spray

Oh this challenge was so far out of my comfort zone...but sometimes you just have to play, and take the advice of your card (more about that below).  This is for the Simon Monday Challenge Stamp and Mist.

I grabbed a piece of watercolor paper, and a TH stencil, two bottles of spray mist by Heidi Swapp and spritzed 4 times. I added two die cut Adirondack type chairs and added a stamped sentiment from Paper Smooches and a die cut from Simons.  I had taped the die cut down, but it moved on me.  Instead of tossing it...because I kinda liked the weirdness of it, I just mounted it higher on a contrasting card says relax, so I did! Just to make that "a" stand out a bit more I added a large sequin to the middle.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful card you've created here! I really love how the soft background turned out and how it really gives that sense of relaxation. The chairs are perfect and I wish I could jump in there and sit down for an afternoon! I also loved the different fonts you used and think the end result is fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
