For this card I started with glossy cardstock, 3 ink pads and my stipple brushes. I stippled the colors over the glossy panel using a pouncing motion with the brushes and then using a wet cosmetic sponge, I dabbed it over the ink. Then I repeated those steps again and decided I liked the look, soft and muted. I stamped the background images on the stippled background and then stamped the square bird seperataly on Glossy C/S and stippled directly on that piece with just the stipple brush and no wet sponge and punched it out. I had a piece of Bride Specialty paper already punched with the Eyelet Border Punch so I added that and then I darkened the flowers, butterfly wings and Right side of the Scallop Square with the marker to give it a little detail! I decided this card wasn't too bad, I am going to play with this technique more!
