My gallery of residual-misted cards




It's no secret that I had to waste mists when I use them for projects so I always have some precut watercolour card bases handy to soak up those residual mists. Over the years, whenever I needed to make a quick card, I would run through my stack of residual misted cards and just pick one to "texturize" and make pretty. Here is my gallery of residual-misted cards....

You must be a CARD-eeeeee-o-logist because you seem to be able to fix up the heart of any paper scrap and turn it into a thing of beauty. Keep it up doc!
