Shimmer, color burst and Penny Black~

Happy Friday! I am excited to share this card with you turned out how I pictured it in my head...early this morning, lol. Last night I worked on it, not good so I threw it out and went back at it this morning.
Anyhow, I started with a piece of watercolour paper (any kind will do) and sprinkled some sepia color burst on and put a few dots of the liquid metal (shake it before you use it) and then I sprayed it with water till I got a nice looking background.
Let it dry! Then ooh and ah over the lovely shimmery background!! It's hard to see in the picture but it's really there!
Then I got my MISTI out, this is the tool that is gonna make your stamping easy!! I put my watercolour piece in place, positioned this PENNY BLACK stamp and put a layer of spiced marmelade on the flower part of the stamp, and stamped the first time. Then I put a good layer of aged mahagony on the flower part and with my gathered twigs marker I did the stem and leaves. I gave it a bit water with the mini mister and stamped. Here is the good news: with the MISTI YOU WILL STAMP IN THE SAME PLACE!!!
I let it dry and lost quite a bit of detail due to the water so I inked up the flower part again with aged mahagony and even the leaves with the marker and stamped again!! Yup, with the MISTI I am able to do that in the same place!!I put a little bit of gold fine tip marker in the center of the flower and voila!!
Little tip from me....I position the paper in the misti and then I secure it with a piece of painters tape, so far I am not so lucky with the magnets, that could be me but this seems to work for me!
                                        Happy crafting! Till next time, Anja

  1. Thank you for this card and the tips you gave using these items. I've got a Misti on order as I'm not so great in repositioning things and then they have to be thrown out. I've not seen the liquid is all I can say...thank you for another great card!
