Spray it!

Looking for a fun way to make a background for a card? Try using mists and sprays on cardstock then cutting up the cardstock for card bases. Here I used my home made sprays to cover the cardstock then I placed a sheet of plastic wrap over it and let it dry:

Stamps: About Art Accents, White Cardstock (sprayrd) Georgia Pacific, Pattern Cardstock: DCWV (once upon a time stack)

Stamps: About Art Accents, White Cardstock (sprayed) Georgia Pacific, Pattern Cardstock: DCWV (once upon a time stack)

I used watercolor and water mixed in a spray bottle to make my color sprays (If you don’t have watercolor you can use re inkers) and I put fine pearl ex plus gum arabic/water (or use hairspray) and watercolor in other bottles. All the stamps on these cards are by About Art Accents and the paint is by M Graham & co. (2 of my faves there!) I love the effect and it’s Oh so Thrifty!
