Dimension

Hi everyone, Nancy here with a fun technique to create dimension on your projects!

As you know, I love playing with my supplies and finding cool new ways to use them. One of my favorite supplies is Glimmer Mist and since I have a new love in Ranger's Multi Medium I thought...hmmm, how would these work together? I have seen people mix gesso and mist...what about these?

For this project I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Scarlett, Ranger's Multi Medium in matte, a Crafter's Workshop stencil, an old gift card and some craft sticks.
I began by placing a dollop of the multi medium on my mat.
I sprayed a bit (1 pump) of the Glimmer Mist onto my medium and
stirred with the craft stick
Placed my stencil over my cardstock...
and used the old gift card to pull the medium across.
I ended up with some great dimensional texture that I left to dry overnight. The matte Multi Medium has a great, wax-like appearance once dry.
With a quick sentiment stamp and a piece of older Prima Marketing paper, it became a cute card.

These cards are a little more simple than I usually make, but I just loved the detail and dimension that this technique offered.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs.
