Technique Tuesday - Thumping

It is Technique Tuesday time again at Sparkle N Sprinkle! This technique is old but a fun one and easy peasy! It is called thumping. I hope you will try it and enjoy it.

  1. Bold or close detailed stamps.
  2. Several colors of  non permanent markers with a brush end --I used orange and light brown on the lion's mane and olive green, dark green and orange on the fern.
Start with your lightest marker and pounce the brush side of your marker all over the stamp using a loose wrist motion while at the same time rotating the stamp. Then go to your next darker color and pounce all over again. Keep doing this with each color of marker going to the darkest color. Then give your stamp a few huffs of breath and stamp immediately. The result is a variegated look.

Easy peasy and fun!  Enjoy!

Darling card! I'm off to see the technique, but first, April, I LOVE the textures on your card - the bow, the embossed frame, and the sparkly Leo. Ok, now I'm off to see your technique! Thanks for sharing a great card!

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But just imagine
if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
Excellent blog!

This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?
Thanks a lot!

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
