Here's a card created by Trina Linford using the October 2010 Kit. One of my new favorite techniques is using glimmer mist, which Trina used on this card. It's tricky to use the first couple of times, but once you get the hang of it it's a cinch. Make sure you do a couple of test sprays on a scrap piece of paper to figure out how far away to hold the bottle while you spray. After I spray I like to dab the paper with a dry paper towel to help it dry a little faster.
