6 ways to use residual mists on your cards




My watercolour papers are 12 x 16 inches...once I cut them down to 12 x 12 in inches, I am left with 12 x 4 strips which I use to absorb the residual mists left on masks and create cards. :) Here are 6 ideas for how to utilize them.

I am not an 'inky' crafter but the residual mists on the background technique look pretty cool to jiff up the scene!
