Home Alone with MISTI


This is Susan today. I am trying new things and today you get to see one of my experiments. I have used colored pencils before but seldom tried using paper specifically for colored pencils and not using gamsol. This did not come out quite like I thought it would. However, this Impression Obsession stamp is my favorite Christmas stamp, Winter House. It reminds me of our old home as well as a small part of the house featured on Home Alone. 

I removed the foam pad from my MISTI 2.0 because this is a cling stamp. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black onto Mitientes paper. It is important to use a MISTI tool when stamping onto paper intended for pencils and colored pencils. These papers are lightly textured and you may need to stamp two or three times to get a crisp image. I then used my Polychromos pencils and spent part of Home Alone 1 and part of a Hallmark Christmas Movie coloring in this image. I have colored it so many times that it is very relaxing to color it. Time flies along with the snow in the image. 

Thanks for stopping by;

  1. This is so wonderful, and the perfect image to pencil color, Susan!
    I watch that movie at least once every Christmas - the shenanigans just make me laugh so hard! JUST what I need during this Season!
