Team Tuesday with Stephanie ~ MISTI Marbled Courage

I bought the Layering Marble Stamps from Waffle Flower because I knew they would be super-fun to use with my MISTI.  The colors for my card were inspired by this Sunset Watercolor Marble Rug from Frontgate.

I started with Yellow Cardstock to build my base.  The Stamp set has three layers to create the marbled effect.  There is a cheat sheet on the website to show you how to line-up the layers.

I began with Wendy Vecchi's Pink Peony Ink for the first layer.  I positioned my stamps where I wanted them and then used my MISTI lid to pick them up.  

I love my 12" Memory MISTI for these types of projects because I have plenty of room to move things around.  And the Bar Magnets are awesome too.

Next I positioned the same three stamps to cover my cardstock with marbled goodness.

Then I remembered there was a fourth stamp, so I found it a home too.

Then I used Hero Arts Rose Madder Rose Hybrid Ink for my second layer of marble (in hindsight something slightly lighter would have provided more contrast to the third color, but I love the effect ... that's the fun of these stamps ... there are so many possibilities).

Finally, I stamped the third layer in Cherry Pop and then went back and re-stamped several of the elements to fill out my design a bit more.

I used a sketch from The Paper Craft Crew Challenge blog for my layout with a sentiment from Essentials by Ellen Courage.

I love how the colors matched one of my ceramic fish ash trays in my studio.
