Stencil class Day 1: Inking & Misting

I won a spot in the Stencil class from Mama Elephant - thanks Kryssi - I am having so much fun!

Today was all about inking and misting. Since I had a late shift at work I only managed to make one card - using inking and shifting of my stencil:

I used a TCW stencil called mini Aztec, that I shifted around and sponged with different colors. 

The sentiment is from the CASual Friday stamp set RAD. I colored the AWESOME in the color scheme with pencil and used some enamel dots. Another one layer card.... I love to do them.  The color scheme is from Colour me...! challenge #4

I am also linking this card with Seize the birthday  - BIRTHDAY (anything goes)

Hopefully I'll have more time tomorrow!

Hallo Cornelia,
Danke fürs Vorbeischauen auf meinem Blog! :-)
Deine erste "stenciled" Karte ist auch genial. Ich mag die Farben, die du verwendet hast aber auch die ganze Gestaltung. Finde es extrem spannend zu sehen, wie jeder die Technik für sich umsetzt.
Liebe Grüsse.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
