Smack down Technique

In my stamp group one of the girl's challenges for this month is a technique you can see the Video HERE on how it is done .

I used this stamp set for this challenge for both the background and the flowers I used on top.


I used first the top left flower in a tan and I loved the pebble look it gave to the background, I wish I would have just stopped their but I also used the outline to that stamp on top.


I went with a touch of color using some new altenew inks for the blue flowers and fussy cut them out along with the leaves. Banner I cut myself.

Here is a side view of the card, hoping to show off the background techniue a little better.

Well that's it for today, off to do my running around, hoping not to get caught in too heavy of a rain storm :)

Hope your week is off to a good start and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, I know how busy summer's can get :)

Those are beautiful flowers. I really love your background and all of your pretty layers too! That doily is a lovely accent as well!

It's always a pleasure to stop by your place, Connie. Such an interesting term is "smack down". Your card is lovely. Love the combination of the blue and tan flowers and the doily is the perfect touch.

Looks like a fun technique - I'm putting it on my "list of things to try sometime!" What a lovely card you created -- sweet little doily in the corner!

Darlene said...

Oh so pretty! Well done on the technique! Great job!

I've never seen this technique so I watched the video. Very cool! Your neutral background is pretty for your bright spot of flowers. Love the doily dropping down in the corner. Someday I'll try a few of these techniques I keep admiring. Have a good day, Connie!

Oh Connie, I really loved this technique ... found several videos and pinned them, watch my blog, hope to try it again, in month maybe for DT post. We'll see if I pull it off. I've seen the Hampton stamps around fir reasonable price but not bought any.. wonder what they are like..
Lovely use of them in any case, I dodged a rainatirm and was blessed by mostly dry today, which was merciful of the Lord. Trust you were also.
