Hello! Today, I am over on the MISTI blog with these Slim Scene cards.
I pulled out the Birch Tree Slim Scene stamp. I really like my NEW Original MISTI when stamping a Slim Scene. If the ink coverage isn't absolutely perfect the first time it's easy to add another layer when utilizing the MISTI. A fun technique I like to use with the MISTI and a Silhouette stamp is to stamp in a light ink tone and add highlights with a dark ink tone. To add the dark highlights simply grab a piece of cling wrap and place it around a finger. Next, tap your finger in the dark ink and randomly add color to the silhouette stamp. Then, pat the darker ink randomly on the stamp and close the MISTI lid to stamp over the lighter image. The technique adds interest and texture!
The MISTI is magic when it comes to stamping multiples! Once the stamp is in the MISTI it's a breeze to create more than one background!
I love how the gray and black trees turned out! For a pop of color, I die-cut some cardinals and placed them in the trees. Lastly, I added a Slim Sentiment from Winter Greetings.
Next, I used a light tone of brown for the trees, then added a darker brown using the technique mentioned above. I created a scene by scattering Mini Woodland Animals among the trees. So cute! I die cut the layer with the small scallop die, from the SL Die Cutting System Scallop Frames by PFS and lastly, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment, Sweet New Year.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
