Mixing mists to match

I swear I didn't wake up this morning planning to make Christmas cards, but I think I'm being influenced by what's already out on my desk (time for a tidy up perhaps!)
This challenge - Mixing mists to match - had me stumped at first as I only had blue tinted rubbing alcohol, but then I decided that vodka would probably work just as well (as I have a very little mister bottle so I wouldn't be wasting a huge amount)
I had a number of attempts at this as the misted ink had a tendency to leach under the embossing so I ended up using a "spray and dab right off" method that helped save most of the detail on the trees.
It might not be traditional holiday colours but I've got a friend who will just love it.
