Spirograph Spraying

     I may be dating myself here, but who remembers playing with Spirograph sets? I had lots of fun making the designs with these so of course there's one in my stash of kid's toys. None of my kids every appreciated this toy as much as I did. When I saw today's sketch at splitcoaststampers sketch challenge I thought it would be fun to try out the spirographs as a mask with spray. 
I laid my Spirograph circles down and then laid a sheet of scrap paper to cover the rest of the card. I then sprayed with Distress Ink Spray Stain-Broken China here

I moved the sheet to the other side and sprayed again in the second color-Picked Raspberry

I gave the whole card a spray with Heidi Swapp sheer Color Shine Spray and embossed my sentiments in colored ep.

Here's a simpler one without the split panel. I punched the snowflakes out of glossy paper then laid them down as masks. I sprayed Heidi Swapp Sweet Mint and White sprays and a few spritzes of Broken China Distress spray then removed my masks. I put tiny snowflakes in the centers. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment and did three layers to get it distinct. I added some gems to the snowflake centers.

Here's another spirograph design but with the same spray colors as the snowflake card.
