Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Spots and Dots"

As usual I am squeezing in at the last minute with not one but two cards for this weeks Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Spots and Dots":

Last weekend I finally tried the technique that I first saw over at Karen's blog "Snippets" (click here and here for great samples) where you ink your embossing folder with Distress inks, spritz it with water and STAMP it on cardstock. It is so much fun - just think of all the possibilities! As you can see (better on the first card) I stamped with both sides of the embossing folder because I was playing and was curious and then I thought it would be cool to use both on the same card. Not sure if I explained it so well. If you have any questions let me know...
I kept the rest of the card simple without any embellishments because I wanted the technique to shine.
I used another embossing folder in different colors but haven't had time to make a card yet.

Thank you so much for stopping by and your kind comments!


First card:
Stamp: Casual Friday
Embossing folder: Quickutz 

Second card:
Stamp: Stampabilities
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug

You explained it perfectly - love the effect - cool, to use both sides, you put a really creative spin on it.

super gemacht! die Effekte der Spritztechnik sehen cool aus!
P.S. mir gefällt der Vogel auch viel besser als die Rose! :-) habe Savanne (SU) zum stempeln genommen!

And shine it does, my friend! I tried the technique a while back, and it was a disaster! Not having a 'mini' mister didn't help so I think the #1 issue (besides the untalented crafter *grin*), was using toooo much water from my plant mister! May have to go shopping again! Anyway, your cards are wonderful, and your explanations clear! I'll be trying again, with some of my new embossing folders! Hugs~c
