I bought the Layering Marble Stamps from Waffle Flower because I knew they would be super-fun to use with my MISTI. My card was inspired by this Sunset Watercolor Marble Rug from Frontgate for this week's SplitcoastStampers Inspiration Challenge.
I started with Yellow Cardstock to build my base. The Stamp set has three layers to create the marbled effect. There is a cheat sheet on the website to show you how to line-up the layers.
I began with Wendy Vecchi's Pink Peony Ink for the first layer. I positioned my stamps where I wanted them and then used my MISTI lid to pick them up. I love my 12" Memory MISTI for these types of projects because I have plenty of room to move things around. And the Bar Magnets are awesome too.
Next I positioned the same three stamps to cover my cardstock with marbled goodness.
Then I remembered there was a fourth stamp, so I found it a home too.
Then I used Hero Arts Rose Madder Rose Hybrid Ink for my second layer of marble (in hindsight something slightly lighter would have provided more contrast to the third color, but I love the effect ... that's the fun of these stamps ... there are so many possibilities).
Finally, I stamped the third layer in Cherry Pop and then went back and re-stamped several of the elements to fill out my design a bit more.
I love how the colors matched one of my ceramic fish ash trays in my studio.
Hope you find inspiration.
