Glimmer Mist and Ink Spray Mixed Bag

As we have a really nasty day weatherwise down here in the South, I've decided to stay in the warm and do some crafting. There are quite a few cards here which I've made from my sample pieces from a class I taught here in my house on Monday. The shop where I used to teach has sadly had to stop doing classes and reduce it's craft stock to just card due to the recession. As I love teaching, I'm carrying on based mostly at home.
The class we did was based on using various spray inks-Glimmer Mists, Cosmic Shimmer Mists and other spray inks from Sticky Fingers, Crafty Notions and Adirondack.

I have used watercolour paper for the majority of the papers as I really love the textured effect that it gives to the finished paper.

Wow Fliss - you have been busy!! They are all beautiful but I think the first card (the trees) is probably my favourite - I love the autumnal colours.

Hello Fliss,
Hasn't the weather been dreadful, wish I'd been inside too. Fantastic work, my fave's the first one too. The colours are stunning and the sentiment is unusual.

These are gorgeous, Fliss. Tree is my favourite. Weather okay here in Cambridge - just very windy. But am going to stay in and craft anyways.
