My 2nd time using my new MISTI tool! I always have difficulty getting complete ink coverage when stamping on watercolor paper. I have the same issue with this particular stamp (it has been used many times with Stazon). So I really put my new MISTI to the test with double stamping issues on this card.
I created my background using Distress Inks and the smooshing techinique on watercolor paper and layed on my MISTI. Then I arranged my image and sentiment stamps on my background paper. Closed my MISTI to attach stamps to lid. Opened lid and inked stamps with Archival Ink. Close lid to stamp images on paper. I did this 3 times to get my perfectly inked up images Wow...just like magic and so easy !
I finished my piece by spritzing with water for a rainy day look (does not snow on the southern Oregon coast) and added Wink of Stella to bird image and raindrops.
Nancy, this is just plain Fabulous! The BG is just wonderful as a backdrop for the bird and you know I love the tilted layer! I know what you mean about getting a good impression on watercolor paper. So glad you're enjoying your new toy!
