Thumping Thoughts



     I try to “theme up” my monthly Stamp Club projects.  Whether using similar products, holiday or occasional themes or any other stretch of my imagination, it seems to be working for me and helps me to plan out my monthly meetings.  This month, I wanted to show ways that we can add additional color inks to individual stamp images.

     For this card, I used both the “thumping” technique and the “rock-n-roll” technique.  Both are fun and interesting and deserve to be explored by everyone :)  Using the floral stamp from Thoughts and Prayers set, we inked it up in Certainly Celery and thumped on Garden Green and Concord Crush marker.  The “flower” in Baroque Motifs (on the Retiring Stamp Set List) was inked with Pale Plum and rock-n-rolled in Concord Crush.  We then punched the flower with the 5-Petal Flower punch and re-punched the points off with the 1-1/4” circle punch.  The sentiment is from Word Play.

     Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you can thump and rock-n-roll throughout your day :)
