foiled splatter with minc reactive mist

this weekend was all about shiny things in my craft room! i treated myself to new pretty pink posh sequins (including rose gold), light pink foil and minc reactive mist.
i started with a little distress ink watercolor.
next i sprayed my panel with reactive mist. the mist comes out in a very powerful, heavy spray so i found it best to spray from higher up. and the mist is very sticky so make sure to clean up the extra splatter quickly.

before you can apply the foil and run it through your laminator, the reactive mist has to dry completely. if you don't let it dry, which of course i didn't the first time, it smears into a messy blob like this:
my second try worked much better:
after foiling, i stamped and embossed "thanks" from the essentials by ellen hello gorgeous set.
my embossing was a little splotchy due to the foil underneath so i touched up with a versamark pen and more embossing powder.
i love the mist and i can't wait to use it with stencils.

hope you had an awesome weekend!
