I still have a few more Quick & Cool technique cards to show you from my Too Cool Demo Team shoebox swap earlier this month. Today's project is definitely a "wow" that is super-easy!
Team member Jodi Geers brought this gorgeous Swallowtail card for us to complete at the swap. I love all of the colors and details in the wings, which we created using the Thumping Technique.
Basic Thumping Technique
- Ink up a detailed stamp in a light color.
- Using another color of marker, tap or "thump" the brush-tip end all over the image.
- Repeat the thumping process with other colors of markers, as desired, starting with the lightest colors first and moving on to the darker colors.
- Huff on the stamp to re-moisten it, then stamp onto card stock for a multicolor image.
For Jodi's card, we used Sahara Sand as the base color, then we thumped on So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, and Basic Gray. The card was finished with a Blooming With Kindness sentiment, and some Basic Gray Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. It took less than 5 minutes to make this card! Awesome!

So how are many of you enjoying the beautiful Spring snowstorm?! My Lucky-dog sure loves it!
He's so excited about the snow he's running around like a firecracker is up his butt! This was the best photo I could get of him and I had to hold him in place. Check out those snowballs on his legs! What you can't see are all the snowballs on his head from sniffing around in the snow. He's a happy, happy dogger!
