French Foliage

I'm sure that there is a name for this technique, but I don't know what it is!  I started by sponging Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight onto Vanilla card stock, taking care to get a good saturation of color.  Then I stamped En Francais and the spatter stamp from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Soft Suede, then sponged the edges with Early Espresso.  I stamped the leaf images from French Foliage in Soft Suede, then painted the same images with gold Smooch paint then, using a Stamp-a-ma-Jig, stamped over the Soft Suede images.  After everything was dry, I sprayed the entire piece with gold Smooch Spritz.

All products used are SU!, unless otherwise noted.
