What a week it has been! On Tuesday night I was trying to load this card to the CCEE blog for this week's challenge, and the photos would not download. It turned out I had a virus and my laptop had to spend a few days with the Geek Squad. What great guys and after 3 days, I finally got my laptop back. Here is the card that I could not load earlier.

I did it using my MISTI using this silhouette stamp from SNSS. I inked it with green ink, stamped it, then inked it  by adding the turquoise ink in a striped fashion using the edge of the ink pad. I used those teardrop mini ones from Memento. Then I added some hot pink and this was the results.
Pretty easy and fun. I got inspired by Lydia's MISTI Marble technique on SCS but decided to do a direct from pad kind of application of the ink rather than the glove she used for the marbling effect. I couldn't find a rubber glove around my house, so the adaption was a necessity.

What a great idea! The MISTI makes all things possible! I love this fun marbled silhouette image!

Glad your computer is back up and running!

so glad you were able to upload this how you invented your own version of the technique

so, tell the Misti really easy to use??? Do you consider it a good purchase?? Do you use it often???
