Double Background Stamping with the MISTI

Have you ever wanted to layer one cling background on top of another? Well I have and I am not a fan of kissing stamps. Sometimes, I just want a faint layer to show through a darker pigmented layer.
Using my regular sized MISTI and Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock, I inked up Impression Obsession's Cover-A-Card Fluff cling stamp with WPlus9 Designs Fairy Dust Dye Ink. It is important to use a dye ink for the first layer as the ink is translucent. Once I was done with the stamping, I heat set the ink.

Leaving my card stock in the same position, I added Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripe to the door of the MISTI. I inked it up several times with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide. For the second layer I found that using a pigment ink was best as these inks lay down a layer of opaque ink and will hide the first layer. I then set this main panel aside to dry. Once it was dry, I cut it into a 4" x 5.25" panel and mounted it onto a Neenah Solar White 110 lb card stock side folding note card.

I am making this card for my granddaughter so I stamped the cute little girl with a big bow from Ink Blot Shop's Little Something stamp set. I used my mini-MISTI to stamp this image on a scrap piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. It is very humid here so I had to heat set this before using my Copics to color the image. I colored her in my granddaughter's favorite colors of navy blue and pink. I used B91, B95 and B97 for the blues, RV11, RV14, RV19 for the pinks. I stamped the leaves from WPlus9 Modern Roses with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored these in with various greens. Honestly, they were sitting on my desk so I decided to add them at the last minute.

I used my mini-MISTI to stamp the sentiment - Lovely Old World- from Impression Obsession using some Versafine Onxy Black ink. This is a cling stamp so I removed the foam pad from my mini-MISTI. After this I added some droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. I also added Clear Wink of Stella to the bow and her dress. I allowed that to dry and then added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bow.

  1. Susan, I have stamped over top of a stenciled pattern, but I really like your idea and plan on giving it a go! Thanks for sharing this idea - and both of your adorable cards! I love all things 'Anne with an e' - love the sentiment so much! xx
