Hello...its a lovely sunny day here...and certainly spring like...I have lots of plants to get into the garden this weekend so I hope the weather plays nicely...but its not looking good...we'll see..
A little while back I was asked what I would like for my birthday...you know how it is ...you can never think of anything. I thought of something crafty...maybe a tool or something that I wouldn't want to spend on but if its a present...well that's different...lol. Anyway while hopping around blogland I spotted a 'Misti' being used layering up stamps. To be totally honest I didn't pay that much attention to it.. I just thought it seemed a good idea but didn't take in its potential.
Well not really knowing what to have for my birthday, on a whim I asked for a Misti, I didn't think it would happen as they were all out of stock......but I got one!!
As I've been under the weather I haven't touched it...until today. I looked at some videos on You Tube to get a grip of it and that's when I realised what a great piece of kit it is...lol. I love the stamps that you stamp on top of each other to create a brush stroke effect but I never had any success with them..my lining up was always out and in the end I gave up and the stamps went into a drawer never to see the light of day again...lol...but look.....
I used a SU stamp set - Lotus Blossom...I spent a whole Saturday a while back trying to stamp them together without success and I did this using the 'Misti' in minutes. I love it. So now I wont shy way from buying these kind of stamps (oh no...more stash...lol..) The sentiment is CBS and I finished with a few clear dots.
I wont say that I couldn't live without one now but it will have a place on my desk so I can use all those stamps I've struggled with.
