Welcome to Day #4

Summary Process

For this card I again used the Tim Holtz "Wrinkle-Free Distress" technique, although this time used DecoArt Media Mister sprays in place of Distress Inks.


I love the vibrancy of the colours and the fact that they are permanent once dry.
Prior to adding the colour to my background I used clear embossing powder with a "mini squares" stencil to create resist areas.
Check out the other posts from this weeks series where I cover other techniques and ideas.
