Peony with the MISTI
In my reorganizing, I came across this stamp set from Impression Obsession. I had never used it yet because I needed to brush up on using a stamp positioner (the old-fashion ones). Along comes the MISTI stamp positioner and I want to immediately work with it.
On white card stock, stamped each peony stamp in the set with Distress Inks.
After it was dry, I made a watercolor palette with 3 of the green Distress inks. With a small watercolor brush, I colored around the peony. Then I used a round die. The next smaller size die was used to cut a piece of Fun Foam to place right behind it.
The next larger size die was used to make an opening in the framing panel. It was then adhered to the A2 base card. The peony image was then adhered to the base card inside the die cut circle.
I stamped the sentiment and cut it with a tag die. A droplet was applied. The tag was adhered to the framing panel under the stamped peony.
