Just been having a couple of days playing about with the Misti and it's probably one of the best things ever - but even with the new toy Mr Mojo must still be hungover from Christmas and lying down in a dark room somewhere as I currently am completely devoid of ideas.
So where do you turn to - Pinterest of course - well I do anyway.
So here's a CASE.

I have had this stamp for a few months and never used it.
I bought the stamp intending it to be donated as a prize - but then it just lay (with another one bought at the same time) on the shelf.  Being devoid of ideas and seeing how it was used during my internet trawl, I decided I might as well use it myself!
So have gone mad with it this week - and am actually quite happy I didn't give it away.

Made a set of note cards using the stamp with different colours for the flowers (which I will share at another time) and had a bit of a mess about with some masking, sponging and double stamping on this one.

Happy with how this turned out - it's a lovely softie feminine type card.

Challenges -
Sweet Stamping - Something New
Just Us Girls - New
MTTC - Something New
Flower Challenge - Blue and Yellow
(Am hoping the background sponging counts as yellow enough - I used a mix of Squeezed Lemonade and Shabby Shutters as the Squeezed Lemonade I didn't think gave enough depth.)

Have a great day whatever you're doing. x

This is so beautiful and delicate! Your masking is done expertly, it's clean and with no mess, and I like how the flower extends over the masked area on the top.
Looking forward to see this in other colors as well.

So glad you saved this flower image, cause it's really so pretty on the notecards. Love the way you've done the top border, and in the soft, feminine colors, just a right look for the coming spring...very fresh & appealing. My MoJo has been away for some time, I get ideas, but just can't seem to settle on one and have it turn out as I plan it! TFS & Happy New Year. Hugs

This is so soft and pretty Viv and I love the stamp. The MISTI is a great tool and I have been so busy reorganising my craft stuff that I have barely had a play with mine yet, but this has been very successful for you. A beautiful card. x
