I finally have time to play along with the challenge today; 2-step stamping. I love my Rubbernecker stamps for this tech. I have been playing around with a bkg technique....ink your acrylic block with dye inks, drop some blending solution onto the ink and then stamp. That was my starting point for this card as the bkg. behind the flowers. I coloured the flowers with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped then when dry, stamped the outline over that. I kept the bkg. simple by inking the stamp and spraying with water.
thanks for looking,

Your cards are always so vibrant and lovely........I finally gave that bkgd technique with the watercoloring look a try....I liked the results, but when I went to photograph the card, I once again had trouble with the distress ink colors....if I left it muted then the colors were true, but the picture was muddy.....if I sharpened it, the colors deepened and darkened and appeared UGLY......will have to work on that......anyhoooo.....that was my way of saying that not only are your cards FABBO, but so are your pictures of them
