Using the MISTI to stamp on monoprints


This is Susan on the blog today. I had so much fun using my Gel Press to make this card. I have the 8x10 Gel Press. I wanted to make a neutral background. So I used blue paint mixed with white applied to the top half of the plate. I applied Titanium Buff and Pebeo Silver to the bottom. I applied a stencil to the top and pulled my first print. I let remaining paint on the Gel Press dry. Once this layer was dry, I added a thin layer of titanium white and pulled a print which you see above. 

I then used W Plus9 Designs Snow Scenes and my MISTI to stamp the background. I used Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. I used my heat gun to heat set this. For the second layer, used my MISTI to line up the layering stamp. I stamped this with Versamark and then added Judikins White Diamond embossing powder. 

Using my MISTI I stamped the large snowman from Most Wonderful. I used Distress Oxides for all stamping. I also stamped the little ground from Snow Scenes. I popped up my finished snowman with 3M foam tape. 

For the background I used an A2 sized piece of Neenah Solar White and stamped the most distressed looking plank from Wood Planks with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide. I used my MISTI for stamping the background as I needed to shift the paper up as I stamped. For the sentiment, I die cut Sending Cheer from a green paper similar in shade to what I used in stamping. I cut it 3 times and stacked the layers using a liquid glue. I then adhered this to the main panel using liquid adhesive once again. A few sequins and I called it done!
