Hello everyone! Martha Lucia here with you.
I have two projects to share with you. The first is one of my classic CAS cards using the stamp set Best Buds. Let me show it to you:
The spring is around the corner and I am crazy with images and sentiments of the stamp set Best Buds. I decided to create a background using a combination of inks. First I defined the inked area with masking tape and then I applied the ink with blending tools. I used a combination of Distress Oxide and Distress Inks. I started applying Distress Oxide Wilteed Violet on the lower part and then moved to Distress Ink Seedless Preserves and Distress Ink Victorian Velvet to obtain this range of colors. I sprayed only the inked area with Clear Shimmer Spritz from Imagine and believe me the photos don't show how beautiful this background is.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Best Buds using Versafine Clair Nocturne using the Misti and let the card base aside for a few minutes.
In a separate piece of Whisper White card stock, a very small piece of card stock, I stamped the image from the stamp set Best Buds and colored with Prismacolor Premier color pencils and fussy cut with my scissors. One of the advantages of Misti is that you can use papers of any size and you always can place your images in different ways to use your scraps of paper. You never waste your card stock!
After painted the bunnies images and cut it, and pasted over the card using dimensionals or double sided foam tape.
My second project was made using the stamp set Fishers of Men and the Regular Misti too.
I inked the center of of a layer of Whisper White card stock using four different colors of Distress Ink. I used Cracked Pistachio, Blueprint Sketch, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers.
Then I placed the piece of card stock inside of my misti and centered the image of the net included on the stamp set Fishers of men. I moved the card stock to the left and right to stamp the complete panel.
Another advantage of use the Misti is that you can stamp several images at once. For this card I stamped this two fishes using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink over a small piece of Whisper White Card stock. I used Memento Ink because I wanted to colored with Prismacolor Premier color pencils.
I cut two pieces of Island Indigo card stock using the one of the borders included on the die cut set Stitched Hillside Borders. I pasted these pieces over the stamped whisper white layer. Then I pasted this layer directly over the card base. I used two of the sentiments included on the same stamp set, Fishers of Men to complete the card. I stamped them at once using the misti and paste the fishes using dimensionals or double sided foam tape.
Now be sure to leave comments during this month in our Joy Clair blog and in my Stampartpapel blog! We are giving away two $25 Joy Clair Stamps Gift Cards or Certificates and My Sweet Petunia is giving away a MISTI (original or mini, your choice).
