Dazzling Backgrounds in a Snap!

 Hello! Angie here and it's my turn to share a project created with my favorite tools!  

 

First, place the background stamp on the Original MISTI, then place the cardstock on top of the stamp.


Next, run removable adhesive over the cardstock and close the lid.


Now the real fun begins!  Ink the background stamp with distress ink or water-based ink and spritz with water.  Then use a damp paintbrush to soften the edges of the watery ink so that you don't get the harsh line from the ink pad when you stamp.  


Close the lid with the paper well secured with adhesive and stamp!  What is so fun about using the MISTI is that you can stamp repeatedly if you don't get enough ink where you want it the first time.  I had so much fun creating backgrounds, that I didn't want to stop!  


This is one of my faves!  I just love how Twisted Citron played well with Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves!  

  I like to keep the stamp I am using on my MISTI until I am completely done with the project.  In case disaster strikes and I ruin a piece or I just want to make more it's nice to keep the stamp in place.  For sentiments, I love to use my MINI MISTI. The Mini is lightweight and takes up so little space that it's a must-have for me!  


For this fiery version, I used Mustard Seed, Fired Brick, and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I added a die-cut Birthday sentiment from Impression Obsession and then on the inside, I added a Double Dip Note.   I love these notes that give friends permission to pass the card on when they have loved it enough! The other tool I use almost every time I create a card is the Cut-Align rulers.  I love that they have a 0 center for perfect balance and I love the grid lines.  


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
