Adding Colour to Your Life with Judy

Hello stamping friends!

Judy here with my first post as a team member and I am excited! Today I am sharing a colorful (or as they say in the UK, colourful!) card using my MISTI and products from Visible Image Stamps (based in Wales).

I started off by using the Stars and Stripes Stencil, and a hue of rainbow colored Distress Oxide inks, and blended them through the stencil using a blender brush. I love the edge of the stencil that looks like a little bit of torn paper. It adds some interest to an otherwise "flat" looking surface.  Next I added the sentiment from Brighten Your World and the small flower from Total Chaos. I used my Mini MISTI and stamped each using VersaFine Clair Nocturne (my most favorite black ink!). Finally, I added sequins to match the stripes colors and gave my card a lime green base.
I love having the convenience of a Mini MISTI right on my desk all the time! Not only does it help my stamping to be precise and clear, it helps me keep my card bases straight after the intial scoring. I score the line, then fold with the card bases against the MISTI corner, and then crease with the bone folder. Keeps everything nice and straight!

You can find more of my projects on my blog, Joy in a JAR, and on my Facebook and Instagram too! Thanks for stopping by!
