Spritzing and misting

Hi everyone. I had such a lovely crafty day yesterday. I began by making a couple of girls' cards for upcoming birthdays then decided to try out my Nuvo Mica Mist sprays. I took 3 sprays and a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour card, spritzed away and loved the effect so much I used it for a card.

The three Mica Mist colours I used were Silver Smoke, Violet Lustre and Nebula Blue. I sprayed the silver first, as I wasn't sure if I would like it (I do), then the other colours. I experimented with spraying close and further away to get different effects.

I have tried mica sprays before but these are the first I really like.

Once my background was complete, I added strips of Hobbycraft washi tape. I stamped a Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps Brighter Days sentiment stamp using Versafine ink and added a star from Craftwork Cards Julie Loves Stars kit where the washi tape crosses. I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle marker to add a glitter effect to the star.

I cut a 6x6 card blank down to the right size to make a tent fold card. I added some purple paper from the Julie Love Stars paper pad then fixed my finished card front to it.

I realky enjoyed making this card. It was so quick and easy and I can see myself making more of these.

This weekend I have another Trimcraft demo, this time in The Range in Andover on Sunday. If you are local please do pop in- it's a long drive for me so it would be lovely to see some familiar faces.

Have a lovely weekend, Cathy xxx


  1. Hi Cathy this is a gorgeous card I love the background you have created. Have a great day today. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Yhis is so fresh and pretty, Cathy. I'd love to hear more about how you get on with the sprays, I've not had much luck with any of those I've tried - they all just get clogged up quickly and are useless then

  3. Really lovely card Cathy.

  4. Funky, perfect for kiddies/teens but such a nice design that it really works for everyone. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

  5. Beautiful, love the colours you chose and everyone love a bit of glitter!
