Yes, you're in the right place. I just thought I'd try something new. And messy! I recently bought some distress stain sprays (Lawn, Ocean, Raspberry and Mustard as well as Pewter) and thought I'd give them a try.
I used some of the Essentials By Ellen Bold Blooms die cuts as masks and then sprayed away in Lawn and Raspberry and Pewter (hard to show the shimmer in the photo), on Ranger watercolour paper. It definitely gives an interesting effect (and I have some very pretty die cuts now, to use on a future card!)
As for the mess, yes, it was. Despite spraying into an old shoe box, pretty much everything on my desk had a fine mist of pewter on it when I was finished. I tried again with a bigger box and had more success - as they say, practice makes perfect!
