Hero Arts and Perfect Pearl Mists

I saw this technique a few months back and thought I'd try it with the Perfect Pearl Mists instead of water.  Here's the results and the instructions to recreate this card.

Supplies used (shown):  Stickles- burgundy, Distress Ink- Crushed Olive and Forest Moss, Perfect Pearls Mist- Perfect Pearl, Hero Arts Cling Stamp- Pinecone Wreath 
Additional Supplies Used (Not Shown):  Stickles- stardust, Lifestyle Crafts "JOY" die and silver cardstock for cutting the letters, white cardstock measuring 4"x5.25", burgundy cardstock measuring 8.5"x 5.5" and scored at 4.25" on the 8.5" side,  and burgundy silk ribbon.

"Smoosh" both inks on your non stick craft mat as shown above.

Spray the Perfect Pearls Mist on the ink until it looks similar to the above image.

 Tap your stamp a few times onto the ink.

It should look similar to the above image.

Stamp the image onto your white cardstock.  I use a smooth cardstock and apply pressure for just a few seconds longer than when I'm stamping with regular ink.

Assemble your card, add stickles, your die cut "JOY" letters and a bow!
