I saw a video on the Penny Black blog using this stamp and the MISTI and I couldn't order fast enough! The stamp was coloured with water based markers and spritzed with water before stamping, making you feel like a watercolour artist. You can build up the colours and stamp again and again, using the MISTI you know you will stamp in the exact same place time after time. I used Papermania watercolour markers and Distress Markers.
I'll be honest, when I first saw MISTI demonstrated, although I thought it was an amazing stamping tool I didn't think it was worth the money. Once you have one and start using it, you soon change your mind about that! The MISTI really does make you look at all your stamps in a whole new light.
Anyway, after all that stamping, I watercoloured around the image and then splattered with the same blue watercolour, then splattered with water before heat embossing using WOW embossing powder Rich Metallic Gold (the water droplets hold onto the embossing powder) and heat embossed the die cut sentiment with the same embossing powder.
I die cut the panel with Simon Says Stamp rectangle from Bundled Stitched Shapes and mounted on a card blank.
Going to be making a lot of watercolour Christmas cards!
I'd like to enter this into:
See you tomorrow with another Christmas card
