Dream BIG

Today's card features a fun technique - great for those of us who have a large stash of mists.
For this technique, simply squirt some mist onto a non-stick craft sheet (or you can probably use something like wax paper if you don't have a craft sheet), "ink" up your stamp...and stamp away!

(Note: Stamping with mist is not going to give you clear, crisp images - you may want to work with a stamp that is rather solid and not detailed.)

To get the two-tone/ombre effect in the feathers, I simply squirted two colors of mist next to each other on my craft sheet and made sure my stamp went into both colors of mist.
Ink up again and repeat until you've got the look you're going for.

Have fun with it!
