Visible Image and MISTI Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Visible Image and MISTI
Blog Hop and Giveaway.

Scroll down for more details.

I have three sample cards to share with you today.
All three feature the same technique, with different stamps.

 Here are all the products and stamps 
I've used to create my First Sample.
I've linked all the Stamps for you 

 Take a piece of smooth Blending Card stock, 21cms x 16cms
Fold to make a card blank.
Use a corner punch to round off each corner. 
Place the front of your card face down onto a score board
 and score lines vertically right across
 the card to resemble a fence. 
Take an ink pad ( a light shade of  colour is best)  and run it down your card but keep the action light don't press too hard.  
I did not ink the whole card with colour
 as I wanted some white space.
I used a wet baby wipe to gently move the ink around 
and to blend away any lines I had. Dry with a Heat gun.
Next, I placed a Moon / Sun mask over my 'fence'
and created some shadow.
On to the stamping. 
I found my MISTI a most valuable tool 
enabling me to get the stamped images 
clean and clear every time!

  Two more samples for you now
 using exactly the same technique explained above
The stamps are all linked for each sample for you.

and the very beautiful set called BornTo Perform.

 My last sample features the fabulous Jazz It Up
One of my very favourite Visible Image stamps sets.
Plus the ever useful for backgrounds, Scripted Streets
BTW ... My next Rochester Workshop will showcase all of the above stamps from Visible Image and lots more besides!  
 NOW... read on  about the Blog Hop Prizes !
