Stamping With Mists

I love working with mists of all types and have collected quite a few. In my quest to be more frugal with my supplies I am forever looking for ways to make those supplies stretch further. I find that the soft, watery colors work well for stamping a background on paper for a project. This is really a very simple technique and one that can be used over and over for different projects.

You will need your mist, an acrylic stamp and block (I am sure rubber stamps would work as well), a craft sheet, and the item you would like to stamp, in this case cardstock. I always use a craft sheet to collect stray mist. And, as you will see, the mist on the sheet can be reused.

If you have been misting a number of different items and have mist pooled on your sheet, you can certainly dip the stamp into that.
If you are starting from scratch with the mists, you can just do a light spritz directly onto your stamp.
Simply stamp your material as you would stamp with ink. Be sure to not rock your stamp as the mist, being a liquid, is likely to bleed.
Here are a few projects I have made using this technique.
