This was another of the Technique cards we created in class this month.
It uses a Technique for the background called 'Smack Down' :o) .... Even the name sounds like fun!
There are several variations of this Technique around but we did the following ......
Using the beautiful flower stamp from the Best Thoughts Hostess stamp set and Soft Sky ink you stamp down onto the card as normal.
You then repeatedly stamp (without re-inking) just moving the stamp slightly each time around the first impression - until there is no ink left on the stamp. You then re-ink and repeat until your mat is covered.
We then sponged Soft Sky ink all over the mat to cover any white space before repeating the stamping again .... this time with Lost Lagoon ink.
We finished off by stamping (as normal) with Island Indigo ink.
It's a fun Technique that is super simple to do and produces lovely, interesting backgrounds :o)
The main image was watercoloured using the Aqua Painter and ink pads.
