Colorwash Spray Play

I'm thinking of signing up for a swap using Colorwash sprays, so had a play with some today. First I embossed some non coated card stock in a Cuttlebug embossing folder, with one sheet the reverse of the other. I inked the raised areas with VersaMark ink and heat set. Read somewhere, to keep the card stock in the embossing folder when inking the raised areas.
Sprayed the embossed paper with watered down Shimmering Mist and let dry.
Then sprayed on two darker blue sprays (one's I'd made earlier).
Used a baby wipe, to wipe of the raised areas. The VersaMark ink does not give a complete resist of the sprays, but does keep those areas lighter. A shabby chic look.
