I used a couple techniques on this card. For the Dusty Durango strip in the middle, I brayered Dusty Durango ink onto a texture plate, then ran Dusty Durango paper thru the Big Shot with it. Very cool way to make you own DSP :) I also colored on the pheasant stamp with a few markers and did the Thumping technique- just bouncing the tip of your marker on the stamp to add random spots of color. I made my own background paper with More Mustard paper and various stamps and inks, sponged some More Mustard ink and Champagne Mist shimmer paint onto it. It looks soooo fab in real life! Ok, now I better get to the supply list.
- Stamps: Autumn Days
- Paper: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Dusty Durango, Very Vanilla

I tried to catch the shimmer here, I think you can kind of see it. But the pics do not do it justice. You have to see it in person to get the full effect.
Let me know what you think!
