No, I am not teary eyed. Just mixing up a little of my own color stamping mist to stencil a background. I love how it is soft and can match whatever ink and paper I am using. I used 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol and 75 drops of Bermuda Blue re-inker in a small spray bottle. My favorite paper to use when I am getting something really wet is SU's Shimmery Cardstock. Don't you love this color?!
