Flowers From Misti - FMS178






I often color my stamps with markers to get a multicolored image and that usually involves inking and stamping the image several times to get the result I want! No more thanks to you know who......that little Misti!  I inked and stamped two pots of flowers. Each one was stamped twice to get good coverage in the exact same spot and that was it!  I used only two pieces of white paper - a miracle in itself - and punched out the circle to spotlight the image and I was done!  I am thinking Misti needs to be in the spotlight!

My oh so faraway and very talented friend Narelle has a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I put flowers on my card just for her....she makes the most beautiful floral arrangements on her cards!  I think she was a florist in a past life!  Hope you join us!

I just got my Misti two weeks ago and I love it. I always have to scrap a few things in the process but not now. I love it and your card.

Such a pretty card Linda! I love that pot and those flowers! They go so well with the background! I don't think I can cave to MISTI yet! I may have to wait for the Canadian $ to gain some ground!!!!

This is so, so pretty Linda! Delicate and that inking is a wow. Not even sure that I understand how you did it yet but I will......
