Designer Tip: The card will start to curl a bit when it gets wet, so be careful not to saturate the card with the mist colors. After misting with the ink, I blotted the card with a paper towel, then placed a clean paper towel over the top and a book for weight, and let it dry 10 minutes between applications. You can repeat the spray for a deeper color.
