MISTI (My Sweet Petunia)
It seems like everyone in my Facebook feed is waiting for April the giraffe to have her new baby. If you haven’t seen the live feed you can see it here. I thought to myself this would be a perfect time to use my Designer Giraffe Craft Stamp by Karmabee from Simply Stamps. Love the fun zentangled design in the giraffes!
I started by stamping my giraffes onto a post-it note (I used a couple and glued them together so I would have the sticky at both the head and feet areas.
I used a pair of scissors to cut out my image creating a mask.
I stamped the image onto a piece of white cardstock with black ink.
Next I carefully covered the image with my giraffe mask.
I placed my stencil (Polka from Brutus Monroe) over my image and sponged ink (Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers) and then repositioned the stencil and sponged on a layer of Twisted Citron.
I removed the mask and added a little coloring to the giraffes with markers (Zig Clean Color). I used my Happy Everything stamp – this is a Custom One Line stamp from Simply Stamps. Have you ever wanted a special phrase and couldn’t find it anywhere? Simply Stamps has your problem solved.
I hope you enjoyed my project!!!
Have a great day! Jeanne
I’m hosting the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoast this week! The challenge is to use a heart in your project along with at least two mediums. I used Stamps from Impression Obsession, inks, watercolor and a little white acrylic paint on my project. You can see the challenge HERE.
I started by stamping my flower (). I used my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) to stamp the image repeatedly adding inks to the stamp until I got a good blend. Did you notice the new My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners? I love them!!!
Next I added my heart () and some loose watercoloring around the flower. I stamped my heart directly on top of my flower. I added some details to the flower with white acrylic paint.
I stamped the sentiment with black ink. The My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners came in especially handy here because My paper was a little warped from the watercoloring It held the center down very firmly so I could stamp my sentiment without magnets sticking together.. nice!
After I was done with this step I misted the back side of the paper lightly with water and let it dry with a couple heavy books on top to get it smooth again before assembling my card.
