Rainbow Stamping | Picket Fence Studios & My Sweet Petunia Hop

Hello!

I'm excited to be part of today's hop.  I have a couple of cards to show you today, created with my MISTI - and the A Rose, and Favorite Notification stamp sets.  All of the supplies used in today's cards, will be listed at the bottom of this post for your convenience.  


There are prizes to be won in this hop!  There will be a winner of a $50 gift certificate to My Sweet Petunia, and a winner of a $50 gift certificate to Picket Fence Studios chosen from all the comments on the hop!

Today's card focus on a really easy Rainbow Stamping technique.  One of my favorite things with MISTI, is the ability to stamp multiple times in the same spot - and always have your image perfectly aligned.  This allows for some fun with the inks you use.    


For my cards, I used Distress Ink Mini pads, although any mini ink pad could work for this first card.  I lined my card front, and the beautiful A Rose Stamp up in my MISTI, then began partially inking my stamp.  I started by inking with the Wild Honey Distress Ink.  Then I closed the door of the MISTI and pressed the stamp to the paper.  Then I inked the stamp with the Peacock Feathers color - without cleaning my stamp. This allows the color to mingle a bit on the stamp, and on the paper once it is stamped.  I again, pressed my stamp to the paper - aligning perfectly with the first stamping, thanks to the MISTI.  Finally, I inked the stamp with the Festive Berries Distress Ink, and pressed it to the paper.  


I cleaned the stamp, turned the card front, and repeated the stamping, through all three colors.  Then I trimmed the card front down, and matted it on a piece of Pitch Black card stock.  I stamped, and white heat embossed, my sentiment from the Favorite Notification Stamp Set, onto a strip of the same card stock.  The sentiment was attached to the card front, and then the card front was adhered to a white card base.  A few self adhesive gold pieces finished the card.  



I wanted to create another similar card, but make it a super easy watercolor card.  I began by stamping out the image, with the three ink colors, the same as above, onto watercolor paper. 

I took advantage of the water reactive properties of Distress Inks, and once my image was stamped, I used a mister to spray water onto the image.  You can get the ink to move just a little, or a lot, depending on how much water you spray.  


Once I was happy with the spread of the ink, I dried my panel with my heat tool, being careful not to move the color around much.  Then I put the panel back into the MISTI and stamped the image once more, in Versamark this time, so that I could heat emboss it in gold.  I again trimmed the panel down.  I stamped and white heat embossed another sentiment onto Pitch Black card stock, and cut the end of the sentiment strip at an angle, before adhering it to the card front.  I attached the card front to a white card base, and added a few more self adhesive gold pieces as accents.    


That's my two cards today.  These are super easy, as the MISTI and the ink do all the work on the stamp.  But they are super colorful and cheerful.  I hope you give it a try!  

Next on today's hop is Sandi MacIver.  Remember to comment as you hop, for a chance to win the gift certificates!

  4. I would do this technique but I am afraid of cross-contaminating the colors on the ink pads...I use an ink dauber for each color so that I can place the color on the stamp and not crossover on pads.
