Spritzer Fun!

A friend of mine recently cleaned out her craft room and graciously donated all the stuff she didn't use anymore to me! I've had so much fun going through it all and discovering new tools and lots of other fun stuff. This spritzer was one of the items in the stash and recently I got it out to "play" with.
I don't own any Stampin' Up markers, but I found that it works just as well with Bic Markers (which I do own!).
I used it to make two backgrounds for my cards -- above and below
A little closer view of the 1st background so you can see better what effect it has
Then I pulled out some embossing folders (one especially that needs to stand alone) and used it to make the some CAS cards.
I spritzed first, embossed second, and then lightly rubbed some coordinating ink over the images to make them "pop."  Not a whole lot more needed on these cards.
Lastly, I used it to distress two masculine cards I made by spritzing lightly over the Tim Holtz stamped  images in this first one -
A little closer view
...And spritzing after I  stamped my Lighthouse stamp (Stamps Happen) onto a piece of my homemade paper (love the effect that gives the image!!!) and after coloring (with colored pencils).  I spritzed both the background and the stamped image.

 In case you can't tell -- I had a lot of fun with it! Thanks so much Christa for sharing your  no-longer-used supplies with me!
Wanted to leave you with a link: Julile Gearinger has some wonderful cards she's made using the Spritzer - if your looking for inspiration - she has it!

I love your cards!

I'm so glad to see that you're using these things! They've been sitting in my craft room for over a year, unused. I knew you'd be able to use them a lot more than I was. :)
