Technique: Thumping

I just love how this card turned out.  The feather image is from  a Stamp Set called Nature's Nest.  I got all these beautiful colors by using a marker technique called "thumping".  First I stamped the image in the light color, in this case it was Pear Pizzazz.  The two colors I added were Tempting Turquoise and Elegant Eggplant.  I added them by holding the marker sideways to the stamp and tapping it (thumping it) in random places on the stamp.  Its super easy and boy does this look great.  We did this as one of our lunch cards this week so that tells you it was a quick card.  After I got home I wondered what it would look like if I added a little sparkle so I embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  This is the result!   

Stamp Set:  Nature's Nest
Accessories:  Iridescent Ice embossing powder
Colors:  Pear Pizzazz, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquiose
