Kraft it Up - October Challenge

The challenge at Kraft It Up this month is 
'techniques with misting'
Here's my sample.
 I used this photo of my Daughter dressing up in her Granny's Wedding Dress and posing with
her Daddy. 

 Using a technique with Dylusions sprays called 'ghosting' or 'bleaching'
I sprayed my Kraft base with several different colours.
Then placed a stencil over the base and spritzed with water letting the stencil and water sit for a minute or so before removing the stencil and blotting off the water.
This is the effect you're left with. I also flicked some black mist over the Kraft as another technique.

I used some cute little 2Crafty Chipboard pieces on my layout.
This birdhouse, picket fence and the branch to the left of the photo.

Once I'd added all that misting there wasn't really any Kraft cardstock visible but it's there trust me ;)
I added another backing of Kraft and some Kraft tags either side of the photo though, just to make sure.
Hope you can join in and try some misting techniques this month with us at Kraft It Up
