Sketch 2 - Merry Christmas Snowflake
I have two cards to share using the same stamps. This first card did not turn out how I thought it would in my head. Most cardmakers have said this. I think I say this more than I think. Especially when I am making dinner.
I find that lately I take more chances with my stamping. MISTI has boosted my confidence because I know I have another chance. I no longer unmount my stamps until I am totally done. You will see what I mean in the second video.
At first, I used to make my card and then make a video once I got the kinks out. Lately, I find that I get more videos done if I let the camera run. However, I think I learn from solving my mishaps.
This second card really tested me. First, I thought that silver embossing would look nice on the bold watercolors. Wrong. It was too overwhelming. To correct it, I stamped with Staz-On white. Then I realized the embossing powder would not stick to it. So then I had to stamp again with Versamark. I should have just used white pigment ink but I was stamping on the fly.
With my MISTI my watercolor background was not wasted. I hope you enjoy my adventures in cardmaking. That would be a good blog title. Have you found yourself more adventurous with your MISTI?
