Tree project #7

Hi all,
I really wish I was a more effective photographer because this photo does not do justice to this card.
I should have laid it on a piece of dark paper for the picture but hopefully you can use your imagination to picture the effect. How did the tree get multi colored? Using an old technique that I don't think we have used in a class before - say it isn't so!! This technique is called thumping. After the tree was inked up in bashful blue, we took a not quite navy marker and tapped it on the stamp directly..then stamped. This was my favorite project of the class. Course, using that wonderful hardware makes the card really lovely.
