Now about my card that I made with my new mini Misti!! I absolutely LOVE my Misti! It gives me Precision Stamping every time I use it! I have been having such a good time playing with my Misti!!
For my project I made a card using the Joy Clair God's Focus stamp set.
One of the great things about the Misti is you can place your stamp directly where you want it positioned on your paper.
Then you close the lid and the stamp sticks to it. Then you ink up the stamp with the color ink that you want to use and your close the lid .
And you press down on the stamp so that the ink goes where you want it
And if the ink isn't as dark as you like on your project, then you just re-ink the stamp and press the lid down again and it will stamp exactly in the same spot! This is the most exciting feature for me because I can't tell you how many times I didn't have the ink on my stamp evenly and then no matter how hard I tried to line it up again, it just doesn't work. So with the Misti there is no wasted papers!
Now I placed the other stamps that I want to use from the Joy Clair God's Focus stamp set. This is such a fun stamp set and I know I will be using it again and again! I think you would love it too!
Now I leave the sentiment on the paper and take the other stamps off, bring the lid down and pick up the stamp
I ink up my stamp and close the lid to get precision stamping
I lift the lid and see that the stamp stamped perfectly! I love it!
Now I position the camera where I want it on the card
Close the lid and pick up the stamp and then ink the stamp
Pick up the clear plate and ink the stamp
Close the plate back down and give the stamp a little press and it is stamped perfectly!
Then I position the negative stamp where I want it on the paper and ink it up
Press down onto the paper
And VOILA it is perfection!! Now it is time to color!
I colored with Copic markers R29, W1, W3, W5, B00 and B02
When I was finished coloring my camera, picture and negatives I mounted the paper onto some dark gray paper and then mounted that onto a A2 white card base.
