Glimmer Mist - 2 ways

I wanted to highlight a couple more of the projects I created for my Guest Artist time with Tattered Angels this month.
Once you start playing with Glimmer Mist you quickly find there are a number of pretty stunning things you can do with them. The Glimmer Screens are a great compliment. Glimmer Screens are really "masks", they are a lightweight plastic design/shape.
One way to use these two products together is to place the screen on your paper, then spray the Glimmer Mist. The Mist will color the paper on the areas of the paper around where the screen was. BUT - here is the good part - there is now mist all over that plastic screen. Don't waste it, blot it off with another piece of paper. My two cards here are examples of how to use the Screen and the Mist with both of these uses.
On the above card, I placed the flourish screen on a piece of plain white cardstock and sprayed the Key Lime Pie mist. While the screen was still on the paper, I took another piece of plain white cardstock and blotted the screen, transfering all of that extra mist onto my paper. Now I can lift off the screen from my first piece of paper. The design left on my first piece of paper will be the negative of the screen design that you see on this first card.
I took a fine tip pen and drew around the inside of the area that was left uncolored by the screen. Then I added a small amount of Fully Purple and Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist to this piece of paper. Once the entire card was put together with the punched border and the green card base, I sprayed the Copper Metallic Glimmer Mist. You don't really see that here, but the whole card front has a GLEEM to it.
Now remember that piece of white cardstock that I used to blot the green mist off of the screen? I cut out that design, a wonderful green flourish.
Once it was completely cut out, I coated the entire green portion of the flourish with Glossy Accents by Ranger and left that to dry. This dries with a glossy, dimensional finish.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

These are just awesome! Glimmer mist is something that I just haven't seemed to be able to get the hang of. Perhaps I'll have to try again!

LOVE your techniques...this one is especially cool. I'm too cheap and too chicken to dive into new product and new techniques....this has me tempted to go buy some of this stuff though. VERY fun!!!
