Mixed Media Tutorial: Stamping With Mists

I had received some new stamps earlier this week and wanted to play a little. Since I've been stamping for a couple decades now, I've finally gotten the courage to not be so perfect or to not be upset about imperfect impressions. This is a huge step for me and it also means that I'm having more fun experimenting and playing with stamps again.

Today's tutorial is going to be super simple and loads of fun! I'm totally in LOVE LOVE with these cards and can't wait to use them in my pocket pages.

SUPPLIES:



STEP ONE: spray some mist/spray ink on your mat along with some water to water it down

Since I don't like to waste paint or ink, I went ahead and did several cards at a time. I also dragged some of the cards through the left over areas that were too little for stamping anymore.

That's it, three easy steps! As you can see some images were really wet and made a mess, but that's what I love about mixed media. I love the imperfections and drips. There are so many directions you can go with this. Have fun and get messy!
