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
