@singergab I personally don't use tweezers - i wasn't too concerned with the ink bleeding on this background. I just waited until the ink on the paper was about dry and then tipped the pieces off onto a paper towel. If you want more precision (and less chance of ink transfer!) I'd say tweezers would be the way to go!
Hi Lisa, I have question about when you lift the plastic pieces from the card stock after you have misted them. Do you use tweezers to pick them up? I would imagine that the mist could run off and get on the card stock. Please let me know your technique. Awesome layout and card!
Thank you SO much bluestardesign!!! I was searching and Googling and could not figure it out. Much appreciated--off to shop! :)
Hey Lori! That is the BasicGrey magnetic Precision Mat!
Great layout! Can someone tell me what the black mat/work surface used while creating this page is called? Thanks!

In this week's video, I'm focusing on creating with acrylic die cuts and spray ink to make a custom background for both a layout and a card. It's a simple technique that adds a whimsical and colorful splash to your pages!
After asking both my kids the same series of questions, I compiled their answers on one layout. To create areas to feature their separate answers, I used blue and pink spray ink on the sides of the page, and a yellow ink in the middle to blend them. The acrylic shapes are used as masks and once removed, they create a fun, free-form pattern on my background.
CHALLENGE: For this week's challenge, use shapes (acrylic, chipboard, punched shapes, or other!) as masks to create a design element on your page. Post your project to the Seeing Double Challenge Gallery to be eligible to win a $10 Two Peas gift certificate. The winner will be announced on the Two Peas blog in early November.
