Default March 2019 MISTI Monday Challenge

Challenge Title: White focal, colorful background
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP19
Date: March 18th, 2019

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the March Challenge! Also, thank you for being patient while I was sick, for me to post it. Our month time frame has been cut to 2 weeks, but I have every confidence we'll get lots of entries.

Being sick for the first half of the month, I obviously didn't make anything during that time. I also took it easy over this past weekend because I was so far behind in my housework, my real job stuff, and just didn't have any inclination to head in to my craft room. However, today, I saw a card on the Unity Stamps website that really caught my eye and inspired me to make my challenge card!

You can see the card here: Textured Alcohol Ink Background - Unity Blog

Here is the card I created from that inspiration. I thought that keeping the focal point all white, while using beautiful coloring in the background was so clever. I had never thought to do something like that and it turned out to be quick, fun, and I feel like I can create a bunch for Easter.




Stamp sets are from Gina K: Sentimental Calla Lily and Wild Roses (best friend sentiment)

YOUR CHALLENGE:
Create a card with a white/black focal point and a colorful background. You may use any coloring medium. I used distress oxide ink on watercolor paper. Have fun with alcohol inks, watercolors, colorbursts, distress inks, distress oxides, Zig markers...whatever you choose! I hope you enjoy playing as much as i did!

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. All MISTI Monday Challenge Entries must be uploaded to your member gallery, with the specific challenge keyword, no later than, Friday, March 29th, 2019 at 12:00 Noon Central Time to be eligible to win a $50 gift certificate to My Sweet Petunia! The winner will be announced Sunday, March 31st, by Midnight EST.
2. You may combine this challenge with other challenges, and also have multiple entries. Please use a full description on either how you used your MISTI or, if you don't own a MISTI, how you would have loved to incorporate its help!
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

Glad you are back...and I like this design...I need to make some cards for donation (next one is in May) and I can see this to be a layout for several cards.

(Med-helicopter is just going over our house to land at the local hospital, that is not a good sign...praying for the person that will be transported out)

My first attempt didn't go well...my image is too large! Will move that to polka dot challenge I think...

I'll try again because I can and we know I already have more than enough supplies!

Faye I wonder if all the ladies on here added up all of our supplies we could open our own craft store lol...I bet we would have enough just on this thread for 1 store. If I think of which stamps and dies and EFs and stencils I haven’t used...it’s a lot. I’m going to try and use one new stamp or product every time I make a card from now on. It’s a plan. Ask me next month if it worked

I know I feel like I have a craft store in my home. That's exactly how I want it...laughing. I did a major clean up this week and I'm so excited...it looks soooo nice. But I know it's going to be short lived. I'm the messiest maker. But it's FUN!

I'm going to make more of these cards this weekend. I hope. Time to go for a walk right now.

I tried to look to see if anyone had uploaded a card. It's not finding that gallery. Did anyone try? Did you find the gallery? Can someone try and let me know? I'll have to figure that one out, if it's not there.

Thank you!

From my uneducated guess I say that no one had uploaded a card with MSP19 as the keyword yet...but keep checking, today is Saturday!


My day has been a completely successful day doing all of which was not on my list or my desire!


But hey, I found out our little town Post Office had a sign on the door this morning that read...


The USPS has implemented an emergency suspension of the following Post Office...and then listed our town! Now that was a shock.

No uploads yet. I made some backgrounds the other day and I was waiting for them to dry. I'll try and finish them today after mass, and I'll upload tonight. Once someone uses the keyword, it should start the gallery.

I’ve started a BG but won’t get back to it for a couple of days as we have things on.

Faye, why an emergency suspension?

Hope the gallery thread now works. Gorgeous cards ladies what I’ve seen so far.

Happy day

Sis Vicki...I need marbles lol. I still haven’t bought some for the rolling marble challenge.

Did anyone create yesterday? I did. I used my Misti lots as I made a few panels trying to work out a design for a friends birthday. I have 2 cards to choose from but when I am sending cards I’ve made, they have to be just right. I’m so fussy lol. The good news is I didn’t get ink on any of the panels...only where I wanted it lol.

I still want to order the magnets and corners....maybe our local craft store can get them in for me.

Have fun.

Here's my first card for this challenge. I enjoy making my own backgrounds but have always used a clear block, decided to use the MISTI by filling the space with paper to raise the cover! It worked very well in my opinion!

Used the MISTI to stamp the image to get a nice ink look! Stickles on the flowers!

Had fun.

During the night I decided that I will attempt this again...leaving more "white space" and using watercolor paper rather than SU very vanilla....Will try technique the same and even use the same image (I'm lacking vertical images!)

Here is my first card for this month's challenge:

Black & White Note

Use a colorful background with a black & white focal point. So happy to have my MISTI to create a beautiful, dark black image to contrast with the background.

Here is another card for this challenge:

Black & White Butterfly

Having fun with my MISTI.

Question: How do you ladies clean your stamps when they are on the MISTI? I don't like to use baby wipes, so I carefully remove them and place them on my stamp and scrub. Then I grab my clear block to be able to move them back and forth to clean them. It sure seems like I'm doing too many steps. Any suggestions?

I use a spray bottle for water for all ink except for Versafine ...the I use something that is like for stazon ink...

I dry my wet stamps with a paper towel.

I have a black stain that was there before i started using the stazon...oh well, it is a very used item in my stamp room and I don't mind seeing the evidence of use!

I made a second card today (after I went and bought a new die...yes, I have an issue and it isn't the die I wanted that I saw on Hawaiian's card!)

Now going to make a third one tonight! I enjoy making backgrounds and now that I figured out how to use the MISTI rather than a clear block I'm overly happy!

Sally, I use baby wipes. I have 2 stamp cleaners and rarely use them or the spray...I just wipe m8 e clean with a baby wipe or with water and had no,problems. Some stamps are coloured, especially after using black but I don’t mind that. They are loved. I just check them when I start stamping so I don’t get black on my cards lol.

Faye, you will have to see if Santa brings you that die..lol. I love it too

Happy day everyone

Sis Sally I too was using wipes or just water and that what’s it called towel or cloth , micro fiber? I’ve seen many diffrent ways people clean then if not the micro fiber cloths thise shammie sponge type. I also saw the message about wipes having lanolinor something that’s supposedly harmful ? Well I would think simply green is too!! But I once had been given a bunch of stamps from a friend who brought them at a garage sale and I think before giving them to me she let her grand kids have a field day with them and I swear everyone of the were damaged goods. So I opened a thread for advise and tips and there were 2 I tried and it was amazing what it had don’t and yes one was using simply green mixed with water . I can’t recall the formula but it worked well ...also another person suggested versa mark ...lol yeps but I went to wipes which was faster and easier so I thought till I just say the warning about wipe ...heck maybe eventually the versa Mark and simply green will also make the warning too. So I think I’m just going with water and a cloth spray with water dab with cloth that’s what I think I’ll do lol oh wait that is what I have been doing

My second attempt at the Textured Alcohol Ink Background technique for this challenge! I used my Mini MISTI for stamping the sentiment on the vellum with Versamark--sure to get good, all-over coverage with the MISTI, for a great heat-embossed sentiment.

If I found our what the die is I would buy it myself because Santa hasn't been a part of my life since I was 4 years old...I had an unkind brother!

Though I have gotten a FlyLady duster and calendar that I have no clue to this day who sent them to me (2 separate gifts) but it certainly wasn't Santa!

AND...then there's MISTI MONDAY who is an imaginary gifter and I still have my gift from last month to spend...Don hasn't been able to order the item for me yet...maybe this weekend...(I don't know how to order on-line, by choice!)

Hey Liz...fun to see you here! I'm just using ink because I don't have alcohol...I enjoy making my own backgrounds, have a fun time...and I might just send you a pm next week as I will be taking my favorite cousin who is visiting from Australia to a quilt store in your Small Town, USA!

Yesterday I used my MISTI for sentiments as well as the ruler for making the sentiment cuts on another card!

I just loaded two cards to the challenge. I had so much fun playing with background techniques and I love the look of the simple black and white focal image.

After looking again at the first post maybe this one doesn't qualify for the challenge but I sure had fun making a background again with the MISTI. I used a die I bought that looks similar to one that Hawaiian used on her card (then yesterday some enablers helped me find the correct die and my husband purchased it for me this morning before he left for work!)

Not sure I will have time to make another card before the deadline but if I do, I'm using my MISTI as a clear block and making another fun background...with Distress Oxide inks this time.
