 For today's card, I wanted to challenge myself a bit. I decided to use every stamp from a particular clear stamp set.  I have never done that before. I have always used a few stamps from a stamp set at a time.

Stamp set used- CL882 Doodle Flowers

To make the card, I used my MISTI stamp positioner and stamped all the butterflies, leaves, and flowers onto black cardstock.  I let the ink completely dry and then colored the elements with an assortment of Distress Crayons and Gelatos.  As you can see, it is a bit underwhelming:


The magic really happens when you put your paper back in the MISTI and stamp it again with white ink.  This is the end result:



It took quite a while for the white ink to dry on top of the crayons and Gelatos, but it did eventually dry.

I think my favorite thing are butterflies and these are just lovely. Working on a black background brings out the colours very well.

This is such a fab technique, Laura, and is the perfect choice for this new stamp set! The white ink really pops against the black. Thanks for sharing your tips on how to create this effect.

Nice technique. Can't wait to try it!

Kren Kurts said...

The MISTI is perfect for this kind of card isn't it? I love the challenge of using every stamp in a set. I will try that challenge myself. It will put some in on some stamps that might be neglected. Thanks for the inspiration! kReN@afourthlife.blogspot.com

Kren Kurts said...

Such a great technique with a WOW ending! One question. Whose white ink do you use? I have difficulty with white inks. Thanks for the inspiration! kReN@afourthlife.blogspot.com
