I saw this technique (but done much, much better than mine) posted a couple of days ago and wanted to give it a try....wow, was it much harder than I thought! You stamp the main image on acetate and then use sponges to pull color from pastels or ink pad onto your cardstock. I worked at this for several hours trying to get the softness of color as the original poster, but never did. So, I settled for this...I like it, but I definitely need more practice.
The original poster is Doris Stanford and here is the link to her card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...65&cat=531
Take a look at it...she did a magnificent job...wish I could have watched her do it, so I could have learned her trick. Oh well, TFL.

I think you did a a terrific job! Using the cheesecloth background stamp really added a homey touch to the card. I'm going to have to get that stamp somewhere along the line, assuming that it's still around.
Thanx for the plug for my card, too. I'm still learning . . .
