Sprayed Background card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Sprays and Splashes".

Thanks to Tim Holtz's Facebook lives, I've used my sprays more often lately, but I still find it difficult to use sprays. I used Distress Oxide and Distress Spray Stains this time. I started with a little water, so that the sprays blend nicely and the Distress Oxide Spray reacts immediately. I applied 2 layers of spray.


Through the Bubble stencil I applied Distress Resist Spray, and thought it would be a good idea to apply the rest of the spray on the stencil in the background, but I had forgotten that it is actually a kind of glue ... And a little bit of Heavystock came off when I pulled the stencil up ... Okay, lesson learned, don't do that again!
With the Heat Tool I dried the Distress Resist Spray and then made it hot again, after which I immediately used Pewter Glimmer Foil on top so that it sticks to it. That worked very well with the bubbles, but with the negative of the bubbles it didn't work as well, possibly because there was less Resist Spray, a thinner layer that didn't stick well enough.
So if you don't have a Minc machine, this is a good alternative. You should use foil that responds well to heat.
