Ink Smooshing with the MISTI door

Hello friends! Today I’m up at MISTI blog sharing my first post with this fun and easy card using the ink smooshing technique but instead of using an acrylic block I will use the MISTI door to apply the Distress Oxide inks.

Let’s begin! I placed a watercolor panel inside the MISTI and I smooshed Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink onto the MISTI door, sprayed water and then I closed the door to apply the color. I repeated these steps using Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks and let my panel dry. For a final touch I added splashes of gold metallic ink from Hero Arts.

Once the panel was dry I placed on top the Mega Hello Die from Altenew and run it through my die cutting machine. I saved the Hello die cut for another project and I adhered a white card base at the back of my negative panel. Additionally, I die cut one more Hello die cut out of white cardstock and heat embossed it with WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter.

I glued the heat embossed Hello to the background and also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto white cardstock using WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder. I added my sentiment on top of the card, a few gold sequins and my card was finished. I really hope you like this card and try this technique using your MISTI. Have an amazing day!
