The 409 Technique

What to do when a challenge is to use a misting technique and you have no misting products, no misting bottles, no straws and your kid's Blo-Pens have all run dry? You take an empty 409 bottle, rinse it out, add a bit of water and re-inker and give it a spray. I didn't give much thought to the difference between misting and spraying...until with one squeeze of the trigger my paper was saturated and there was no misting effect in sight. I had even held the bottle at least a foot and a half away from the paper. Sadly, I chose to by-pass a practice run and went for it with my stamped and fussy cut images. Sigh...

At first glance it would seem my entry doesn't  meet the criteria for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use a misting technique. Although I can't in all honesty recommend this technique, I've decided to enter it in the hopes that you might get a chuckle out of my story.

If you want to see what a quality misting technique looks like, head on over to CAS-ual Fridays. I hope I have better luck with next weeks challenge. lol
