A little while ago, Studio Calico came out with the “Top Ten Reasons to Love Mister Hueys.” While I agree with many of their reasons, I have decided to add some of my own, along with some gorgeous inspiration from a few Studio Calico Design Team stars!
I really like the spottiness of the Mister Hueys drops – a great technique achieved by slowly compressing the mister! Colors that coordinate with this card: Dewey, Gable Green, & Heirloom Blue. Like the Grid Pattern along the bottom? Try this stamp!
Coordinating Mister Hueys colors: Cameo, Piglet, Pumpkin Spice.
I like the fine misting she has done here. To mist like this, hold the mister far from the page and compress in one swift motion. Isn’t the fade out effect nice?
Mister Hueys have specifically designed masks (Butterflies, Ampersand, & Intertwined Circles) that are great to work with, but I love that Vee used Asterisks Wood Veneer Shapes as a mask here! Coordinating Mister Huey colors: Hot Dog, Orchard, Warm Calico
Do you sometimes feel trapped by how dark black cardstock can be? You can’t use a lot of your favorite colorful pens and inks because not much shows up on it…unless it’s white! Try Calico White or Calico Shine to add some interest to dark cardstock! I like the smaller Autumn Press paper swatches she used too!
You know how great the contrast of a White Mister Huey on black cardstock was above? It’s just as grand on the flipside! Try a Dark color on white cardstock! Check out the Classic Calico cardstock collection pack to add a coordinating detail to any project!
