Each month I teach a techniques class where we go over 2 different stamping or crafting techniques. Participants gradually build up a binder full of things to try with a sample sheet and 2.5x3.5 sample as reference.
This month we did shimmery resist and thumping. I think thumping was my favorite! Similar to coloring with markers, thumping takes an inked stamp and thumps or taps markers in it to change the color. It is simple things that packs a lot if punch! With shimmery resist I got to play with a little known pot of shimmer paint to create a subtle yet lovely background to the card.
I made my thumping sample card using the hostess level 2 stamp set from the new Holiday mini. I love this stamp set!! I will also be using this set in my upcoming holiday stamp a stack. (Saturday the 9th 1-3)
