Over the summer hols I have done 2x5hour card making "taster sessions". Lynne organises these tasters to give us the chance to play with new techniques/mediums. We get have a few enjoyable hours being creative and to meet other crafters.
The first technique we tried was using mica mists, spraying them onto white paper & black card, using masks, printing & generally experimenting.
I used a button mask for the background & then used it to stamp the pattern.
I used the mists on black shiney card here & also on the decoupage rose before I put it together.
