Technique Thursday Blasted Stickles

Hello to all Stickles lovers this is Cynthia
 here to show you the technique for today :)
This technique is pretty cool 
it's my first time doing it and 
it was a success. 
So I hope you try it to give 
your cards a stickled background. :)

First you gather your supplies : Stickles, an air can, and your desired piece of cardstock . :)


Then you add some dots of stickles of all the colors 
you want in every way or pattern you would like as shown below. 
I just added them randomly with the yellow ones; and then I did the same with all the rest.


And once they are all down, you add some of the air in the can and spray them about two inches from the can.  Then you will get a result like the one below, hence the name blasted stickles :)
 Your colors will start to mix and that's what you want so it can get that cool color mix effect. Then you just let them sit over night so they all dry. 
Then you are able to trim you paper to the size you want .

 Then you add it to your card base
 as a background.
 This is how that looks in the picture below .

And the last step is to create your card :) 
And this is how it turned out. 


Thank you for stopping by todays technique and don't forget to link up your project for our fruit punch stickles color of the week you still have time.
