A few weeks ago I asked our friends on Facebook to educate me on misting. I have a two or three misting products in my arsenal, but I’ve never really used them. In the course of the conversation, several gals mentioned “homemade mist”. I was definitely intrigued.
Today, I want to share my recipe for homemade mist. After experimenting with a few different products, I came up with a mist that was easy to make and performs really well. I own a lot of the Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol inks, so I wanted to see if I could make use of those. I took my little Mini Mister, poured in about a ½ tsp of the Pitch Black alcohol ink. Then, I added about 2 tsp. of the alcohol blending solution. Eureka! It worked.
I had the best results when misting on glossy cardstock with the alcohol ink solution. For the card above, I let the misted background dry for about ½ hour, then stamped the cute spirograph designs. Fun!
Have you ever made your own mist? What’s your recipe? Leave a comment and let me know what you think of this technique. Stay tuned this week – I’ll be back on Friday to help kick off the countdown to World Card Making Day.
