Peony Garden with the MISTI

Hello! It’s LauraJane today:) Here we are in the middle of September already!  I’m inking up the Peony Garden Cling Background stamp with the full sized MISTI for today’s card.

JUST A NOTE for the MISTI stamping and clings..I should have taken the black foam piece out of the MISTI before taping the paper down. With the extra bulk I could see that the hinges were straining…OUCH!! Otherwise using the MISTI and clings is the best way to get lovely inking variations:)))

img_1906I started out by inking the stamp with Lemon Drop  and Vanilla Cupcake  on watercolor paper.

img_1908Then I selectively re-inked with Coral Cavern and Lipstick Red.


img_1914On the third inking I used Lipstick Red on two of the solid images and carefully spritzed with water before stamping….that lower bloom got just a bit too much water://

Not to worry though. As you may see, in the other corner, the big yellow peony is getting a bit of detail coloring from zig clean color brush markers…Yellow and Blush. I’m LOVING the looks of that one!!

  • At this point, I decided to trim the panel down and continued coloring the leaves and spaces between the bloom.
  • Then kissed it with with a touch of splatter.
  • Burnished Rose Gold Foil Tape and some thinner tape from the  Sampler Pack – Foil accented the panel nicely! The tapes are very easy to work with and has become my GO-To finish these days:))

Here is the finished card:


I encourage you to experiment with your ink variations on those cling backgrounds and MISTI!! The results are very rewarding:))

Thanks for stopping by!!
