Hello everyone, Kimberly here to share with you all a tutorial using mists in a creative way. If you haven’t already tried to use the mists to stamp with, I hope this inspires you to give it a try. As most of you know, I love to create layouts using ordinary scrapping tools in unique ways. Using the mists to stamp with, gives the stamped image a kind of water colored appearance that I just love.
One of my favorite qualities about Mister Huey Mists is how quickly they dry, as well as the vibrant pigment in each of the colors. These spray inks work well for both misting and stamping.
For this creation, I unscrewed the mist caps and poured a tiny amount into my painting tray cups. Then I used two different paint brushes to apply the ink colors separately onto the stamp image. I let the inks bleed together before stamping the image onto the paper. I painted each letter then stamped them onto white cardstock.
Here is another tip I often do to ensure the best possible image when stamping. If you flip over the cardstock and use the back side of the paper, which is the less textured side, it will give you a smooth and even image. You will still see a little bit of texture through the ink after it’s stamped, and yet achieve great coverage at the same time.
After the letters were dry, I added another little touch by outlining each letter with my pen. Then I cut each letter out and placed a foam tab square behind the letters before attaching them on my layout.
Finally, here is my finished creation with a close up.
Supplies used: Cardstock-More white; Patterned Paper-Countryside- Harvest and Barn swallow; Mister Huey-Bluegrass and Barnwood; Adhesive- Foam Tab squares; Studio Calico alphabet stamps from a previous kit; Fabrips- yellow.
There you have it, I hope this spurs some fun and creative ideas using Mister Huey mists on your layouts.
