Welcome everyone and happy Thursday! I’m going to talk about misting today. Until recently I was scared of misting. I’m still not 100% comfortable with it but now I will at least try it!
For my first card, I used some wood veneer shapes and placed them on the card. I misted the card and then removed the hearts.
The great thing about this is that you can also use the misted veneer shapes on another project.
You can also take the spray top off and use it to splatter the color. Just tap the spray top or flick it over the paper.
This technique is great to use on colored card bases and combine mist colors.
Tips & Hints:
- Be patient. It’s not always going to work the way you want the first time.
- It’s going to be random, not perfect.
- Experiment on scrap paper first. Try closer and further away from the paper as well as different angles.
- If you are using shapes to mask like I did, you may want to adhere them down lightly with respositionable adhesive. The force of the spray may move the shapes.
- It’s going to be messy. Have something to wipe your fingers off and have a box underneath to catch spray and splatter.
- The spray has a large coverage area. Cover over any parts of the card you want to leave clean.
- Be patient. Let it dry completely.
- You can mist die cuts, chipboard, ribbon, wood veneers—all sorts of things!
- Try metallic mists on dark colored card bases. Silver on navy and gold on dark purple look amazing!
- Keep your eye out for companies who sell plastic masks for misting. There are a lot of fun designs out there.
- It’s a great way to make fabulous backgrounds for one-layer cards.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you found this post helpful!
