Designer Tips

  • Don't be in a rush when making backgrounds with mist and canned air. Experiment moving the ink with the air to make sure you get the look you wants.
  • This technique works with cardstock, too. I recommend watercolor paper though because it's a little thicker and you tend to get a more vibrant look with it.
