Team Tuesday with Mindy Eggen! Watercoloring

Welcome everyone! It's Mindy here with you today to share some watercoloring.

The minute I saw the new Watercolor Roses set from Altenew, I knew just what I wanted to do. A while back I saw Kristina Werner do some watercoloring by first stamping in Distress Ink. This is the perfect set to try that technique out.

I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel.

I first stamped my images onto Artistico Extra White Cold Pressed paper using Antique Linen Distress Ink and my Misti Stamping Tool. It doesn’t matter if you get a good impression of the images, as long as you can basically see them.
Using my Altenew Watercolor brush and the new Artist Watercolors, I water colored my images.

Once the watercolor was completely dry, which you can help along with a heat tool if you have little patience like me, I trimmed down my card front to 3 3/4″ x 5″.

One thing I really love doing is double heat embossing. The Misti tool makes this possible for me. I stamped the Believe sentiment in clear ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Once the panel was cool, I prepped the card stock again with an anti-static powder tool and stamped the sentiment again in clear ink. Since I had left the sentiment in the Misti, I was able to get perfect alignment. 
This technique is a really good way to practice watercoloring if you struggle with it.

Team Tuesday with Ceal

Hello everyone!
It's Ceal here and I have a card to share today using the gorgeous Be Kind set by Simon Says Stamps from their Hey Bestie collection. 
A couple weekends ago I attended a retreat in Kansas and I also participated in a shoebox swap so my card had to be quick to make. I came up with this design for a quick and easy card.
 I started with a white card base and some watercolor paper.  I cut out several of the foliage using the coordinating dies from the Be Kind Bundle without stamping them first because it was quicker.  After cutting it out I placed the negative piece in the MISTI and then placed the positive piece inside the negative one and laid the stamp on top, I picked up the stamp with the door of the Misti and inked it u with Fadeout ink by Ink on 3. By using this technique I was able to stamp all the die cut pieces in the exact place that they needed to be stamped. 
I used Tombow markers to watercolor the foliage and for the background I used a Grid stencil by Simon Says Stamp and some Sandy Beach ink blended with the Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence Studios. 

This card would not have been easy or quick without the MISTI, I don't know how I ever stamped without it!

Be Kind

Hi crafty friends, Sandi MacIver here with a new card share for you today created with the Be Kind stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp.

I started by placing a piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock 4 x 5-1/4" into my Misti, tucked tight into the bottom left corner, and stamping the main image very lightly with black ink.
Important - Don't remove the stamp from the Misti.

The Neenah Desert Storm card stock as a beautiful smooth finish and is a dream to color on.

Next, I colored the image with my Prisma Color pencils in:
Parma Violet and
Dahlia Purple.

Once I finished coloring I placed my card front back into the Misti in exactly the same spot.  This time inking the stamp with VersaMark Ink and black heat embossing over my image.

Doing the embossing after I color allows me to color right up to the edge of the image without leaving a little halo effect you often get when you emboss first.

Next I placed my card front back into the Misti and used one of the other stamps in the set to add a little "background noise" in black ink.  I used a large Post It Note to Mask off my coloring by die cutting it with the coordinating die.

I added white splatter with diluted Winsor & Newton Gouache before adding a few drops created with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black.

I wrapped some burlap twine around the bottom of the card before adding my sentiments.

Finally, I created two sentiments from the stamp set, one in coordinating purple, and the larger in black, embossing them both in white.

The sentiments are popped up with small pieces of foam tape to add dimension to the card as is the card front before I attached it to my A2 sized base.

That's it for me today, hope you enjoyed the share, and here are the products I used today:  (affiliate links).

Team Tuesday with Ilina: Happy Everything

Hi everyone!
It's Ilina taking over the My Sweet Petunia blog today for another installation of Team Tuesday.
For my card today I used some of The Ton new release goodies: Large Florals Peonies and Fill in Sentiments. 
To make the card start by stamping the peonies using your MISTI. Tip:While I had my all stamp layers positioned in my MISTI I stamped bunch of flowers and leaves. I used my Scan n Cut to cut them out since there are no coordinating dies. Also you can hand cut them since they are large and have nice round lines around. 
Once you have everything ready  adhere 2 of the peonies and 4 of the leaves onto a 4" x 5 1/4" panel made from white card stock using foam squares.
Next I stamp  the large sentiment using my MISTI and watermark ink  onto platinum vellum. Emboss in white, then I stamp the smaller fill in sentiment and repeat the process. Trim to size and assemble the card.

Rainbow Foliage Hello

Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I have a sweet and simple rainbow card to share!

To create this card, I first positioned the wreath stamp from the Delicate Wreath Stamp Set from Pinkfresh Studio in my MISTI. I then inked the stamp up with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, but only about a third of it and then stamped it on an A2 panel of white cardstock. I then slid my panel up inked up the same third of the stamp with Picked Raspberry and then stamped. I repeated the process for several other colors of ink till I had a complete rainbow. However, I did have to reposition my stamp once while I was creating my rainbow when I ran out of room to slid my panel up.

Once I finished stamping my rainbow I then die cut "hello" from an panel of white cardstock using the Kelly Alpha Lower Case dies. I then trimmed my rainbow panel down 1/8" on the top and bottom sides of the panel and then adhered it onto an A2 top-folding card base turned on its side. Next, I added foam squares to the backside of my "hello" panel and then adhered the panel onto my card front.
