Here is another Pledge Mist background. This time I used a make-up wedge.
On the second one, I followed the directions better and used a paper towel to blot.

Mist-Through Technique

This is probably the easiest "Mist" Technique. Just spray the Mists over something, like screening, paper doily or lace sequin waste (where do you find this???) -- just about anything! So be on the look-out for what you can "Mist-Through."

Our pizza came on a plastic screen. I washed it up and sprayed through it. (I scanned the screen with black cardstock behind it so you can see it better.

Another super-simple technique!

Mist & Blot (the name may not be too creative, but it is descriptive)

All you need for this technique: your misters and 2 pieces of glossy cardstock. Spritz Mists on glossy cardstock. While still wet, take your second piece of glossy, face down, and blot excess Mists from the original piece. Continue as desired.

Note to self (and anyone listening LOL): white space is nice.

Below left: the glossy cardstock sprayed directly.
Below right: the "blotter" piece of glossy cardstock.

I stamped directly on the prepared Mist Blot background with archival ink. I used a black sharpie in areas where the background didn't take the ink very well.

(I needed to change the card sample.)

Very nice. The Bold image stamps really make these techniques work!
Love the ideas pouring out and it is exciting to see folks using creative ways to inspire and explore/play!

Thanks, Spideycindy. And I really like when people experiment and show us how it turns out. We learn from each other for sure!

As I always say "I am a teacher at heart (and a dancer in my imagination)."
Here is my ink test on the Mist & Blot Technique, plus show you what I mean about needing to "help" with a marker:

Left: Color Box chalk ink, charcoal
Right: Ranger archival jet black ink
Since both inks on this background need to be touched up with a marker, I chose the archival ink because black Sharpie markers match it so well.

I am loving this stamp from OnyxXpressions.
I used the Mist & Blot Technique. Image is stamped with black Page Craft pigment ink then embossed with clear ep. I want to keep the card simple because I find the background so interesting.
