I just thought of THUMPIN'

Today is How to Tuesday again. Today is a technique called thumping. It's a really simple put highly effective coloring tool. As a demonstrator we were able to purchase some of the new level 2 and level 3 hostess sets. The stamp I'm using is from a new set called Garden Silhouettes.You start by stamping up the entire stamp. I used Almost Amethyst. You need to use a light color as you will be adding darker colors to it.
I started off by going back over the stem pieces with a Chocolate Chip Marker. Now is the THUMPING. You simple take the Eggplant marker and thump it done in a random pattern across the flowers. Don't over do it. Less is more with this technique!
Huff on your stamp and stamp it. It will look like this when done.
Here is the finished project. The background in the linen stamp in River Rock-I'm diggin' the new neutral!!!!
