Season's Greetings with MISTI

I received an order of some gorgeous linen textured card stock and new Papertrey Ink supplies and decided to make some cards.
I wanted the sentiment to be using an ombre technique so I got out my new toy, the MISTI, and set to work.  This makes multiples of cards a snap and for an inking method like this where you want to stamp over multiple times, it's super easy!  Here's a video showing it in action:

I used multiple colours on the sentiment (Fuschia and Merlot from Fresh ink) with the lighter colour at the top and then the darker shade below.

I added Tuscan Olive on the lower sentiment and that's it!  The linen texture is great but hard to get a good shot of.
And here are a bunch of them all together on the MISTI:
Love this tool for its convenience ... and love my new stamps! :)

These are just stunning Cara! Your new toy looks really intriguing and I've seen lots of others rave about it too so maybe I should check it out! I meant to pop back here ages ago when you commented on my challenge having just missed the deadline - I would love to see the card! :)
