Ivy and Thinking of You

Hi, Angie here with a touch of ivy! I am not a green thumb; my sister and mother are, but that gift was not given to me. I am known as the plant killer; however, I am all about paper greenery!  

An image such as this makes me itch to break out my paints, which is what I did here. The MISTI is always my favorite tool in my art room and even more so when I watercolor. Since watercolor paper is heavily textured, it requires multiple inkings. The MISTI keeps everything in place for perfectly stamped images every time! For most projects, I like to use more than one MISTI for each project.  Just in case disaster strikes, like a kitty putting his paw in my water, shaking it off, and making a mess on my finished coloring.  (You know that has happened, LOL).

   I stamped the image in my Original Black MISTI and watercolored it.  I adhered the panel to the gray card base.  Lastly, I placed the card in my Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment. If I attach the image panel slightly less than perfectly, stamping the sentiment last ensures the greeting is aligned perfectly.
