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.

I've been stamping for about 12 years or so and have been an independent Stampin Up! demonstrator for 8 years. I don't do many workshops, but am mainly a hobbyist -- and love it!
Stamping has given me an outlet for my creativity, for which I am truly grateful. I'm also a member of the Paper Crafters Sampler and the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew design teams. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
