While visiting Leslie's Blog "Running With Scissors", I saw this really neat technique "Background Stamping From Scratch". Along with Splitcoast, Leslie is a huge inspiration to me!
For my card, the main image was stamped using Black Staz-on and watercolored paper. I watercolored the image using Barely Banana, Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery & Mellow Moss inks. After the image was completely dried I masked it and took my En Francais Block stamp and randomly inked the stamp in different areas of the stamp. I then took the block stamp and stamped over the masked image. After lifting the stamp and masked paper off, I sponged Creamly Caramel and Close to Cocoa in the open areas.

Today's card is for Jen Del Muro's sketch "SFYTT". I ordered some of the NEW Summer Picnic paper along with the Tart & Tangy stamp set and could not wait to play with it. I have a long list of cards to make but could not resist dipping into the NEW paper and stamps.
Thank you for your sweet comments! Have a great week! Jennifer :)
