Welcome to the Thankful for the MISTI Blog Hop!

Comment on all the blogs along the way for chance to win two MISTIs (your choice of original or Mini) – one to for you, and one to your friend or relative that YOU are thankful for. Comment through Sunday on all blogs on the hop, and winners will be notified on Monday.

Why I am thankful for my MISTI

Perfect placement of sentiments every single time.
No more hunting for the correct sized block.
The ability to restamp in exactly the same place to get a nice solid image,
Chickens like the MISTI too.

Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I watercolored a splashy image (see colors below). After it was completely dry I stamped my sentiment with black ink. 1 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I inked up my leaf stamps in orange (Spiced Marmalade) and then tapped in a bit of deep red Aged Mahogany) ink randomly before stamping. Because it was on watercolor I needed to stamp more than once to get a nice solid image. I kept going stamping leaves until I had framed the sentiment.2 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I finished my card by adding some gold metallic tape from Hobby Tape under the sentiment words and adhering the panel to a kraft card base.

I added a strip of old book page onto kraft cardstock and stamped my leaves with my MISTI . I used a wet paintbrush and ink to add some shadows and sponged a little ink around the image. I added the sentiment in black ink. I used black tape from Hobby Tape for a border.2 Special Jeanne_Streiff
