The next thing I read on Bister was how to make a coloured spray to spray your cards. So I made up a few of those.
Here I used just a tiny bit of Bister. I was going to measure it accurately but my smallest measuring spoon was 1/8th teaspoon. WAY too much! So I'm looking around for a universal container that is really tiny and came up with a golf tee! People all over the world play golf! So I put a small amount on the head of my golf tee and scraped it flat. Here's a picture with a penny for perspective:
That is the amount I put in my mini mister along with 1/2 teaspoon of water.
I tried some experimenting with the green. These both started off with Mike's large Medallion embossed in clear and then sprayed with green. On the right one I immediately took a paper towel and sponged off the excess spray. On the left one I just let the spray dry naturally. You can see the left one is a more intense colour.
I'm an intense kind of colour person so I made the card of the day from that one! Here it is -- I ironed off the embossing to get this look:
So, again, this was nice enough, but not heart stopping for me. Can't see why this is any different from anything else that I already have. This was not the reason I was so amazed by Bister. You'll have to hang on until tomorrow to see what all the excitement is about! (Cheer up -- if I was George R.R. Martin you'd have to wait 5 years!)
