Here is another card I made at the Card Buffet class I took on Saturday at Scrapfest. Super simple but fun. The card is a textured, deckled-edge, pre-scored card by Strathmore. There were matching envelopes too which was nice, especially for this size, 5” x just shy of 7”. The paper is similar in texture to rough watercolour paper but much thinner. I sprayed it with Moonlight Glimmer Mist over a Tattered Angels mask. In my own workspace, as opposed to the class situation, I will be sure to spray my masks with repositionable spray adhesive so the image is sharper. As you spray the GM on the paper, the paper curls up and the mask lifts up in places. This allows the GM to spray under the mask and the image gets indistinct. Still, it is an interesting effect. I used an Xacto knife to cut along the masked image and then tucked my focal image underneath. Makes for an interesting, flat, easy-to-mail card.
TIP: Get a clean, empty pizza box for spraying all glimmer mists, inks and adhesives. With the box lid at slightly more than a 90 degree angle, cut ‘wings’ out of fabric to prevent overspray at the edges. Using fabric means you can staple the fabric in place but still close the box when not in use. Place the box on a table or counter, the lid should want to fall back but stay up because of the fabric wings. This set-up also allows you to place your project vertically if you wish, which prevents big blobs if you want only fine spray. When your work is vertical, the blobs fall before reaching your project because they are so heavy.
