Rubbernecker Haul, Plus MISTI Masking Technique

I bought some great stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps,

I thought it would be fun to show you how to mask with the MISTI.
I used two old Stampin’ Up sets, Hello There and Madison Avenue that you can still find on Ebay… I used Color Box Cat’s Eyes in fawn, butter, chambray, plumeria, black cherry and mint to stamp with. To mask a long strip, put a piece of paper on the portion of the stamp that you don’t want inked, and ink the rest of the stamp, then remove the paper, and stamp it on your image. I stamped the long stamp that I kept calling a Quatrefoil (and it’s actually a quatrefoil, shocking, I know!) I stamped two of the quatrefoil on the left side of the bottom row in one color, then stamped beside it with the entire stamp in another color, then stamped the end of that row in a different color. I stamped three quatrefoil in the second row on the left, then the full stamp, then two quatrefoil at the end of the row. The third and fourth rows i only stamped the full stamp in a different color on both rows.
To remove the ink that I had on the card that was an error, I used my Mono sand eraser to take it off.

The “Hello There” I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then used clear embossing powder to heat set it.

I stamped the smallest stamp from the Madison Avenue stamp set between the rows of quatrefoil in different colors. Then I took my colored pencils from Marco Renoir and my white Prismacolor pencil. After coloring the insides of each quatrefoil with two different shade to accent the ink, I took Gamsol on a baby Q-tip and blended the colors. I used the white on the very centers of each quatrefoil. I took Judikins Diamond Glaze and coated all of the quatrefoil then let them dry. I stamped the envelope with another quatrefoil shaped stamp from Madison Avenue as well as the smallest stamp from that set.
