Good morning! Excited to day to be hopping along with both the Technique Tuesday AND My Sweet Petunia Design Team. This hop is full of inspiration and fun, as well as prizes! You should have arrived here from Ceal Pritchett - entire blog hop list is at the bottom if you get lost along the way!
I'm showing a fun technique today for using your MISTI along to help with using colored pencils on your images!
First off, line up your image on your paper that you are going to be using, and stamp with the MISTI. Careful - don't remove your stamp from the image yet!
Next up, color in the image with your colored pencils. Cute, right? However, do you notice how the colored pencil covers up some of the detail of the stamped image? Makes it less clear and more muted?
This is where the magic of the MISTI comes back in! Take that image back to your MISTI and restamp over the top! See the difference? Now, if you stamp and don't heat emboss, make sure and give your ink time to dry. I used a dye ink, and it did sit on top of the waxy pencil for a bit, but giving it a bit of time to dry it stayed on just fine.
For my card I used the cute little Sassy Coffee stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I also used Circles Crafting Dies and Little Labels to heat emboss my sentiment.
Some fun pattern paper from Carta Bella, a doily and some twine for texture, and a bit of black matting around the outside of the floral pattern paper finish this card off!
Here is a previous example of another card I made using this technique. For this one I stamped in a soft colored ink, colored with my pencils, then heat embossed in white over the top. I also LOVE this effect! You can find the details of this card HERE if you are interested in checking it out! :)
