I had a challenge picked out a while back for this month. I would have sworn I bookmarked it and now I can't remember what it was :idiot2:

So last night I was looking on Pinterest and found this one and thought it looked really interesting and one I don't think we have done before here

Heres a couple of videos on it

I plan on working on this tomorrow. It looks like fun, I hope you'll play along!

This looks really fun, LeighAnn!  Thanks so much for hosting the challenge.

I cannot see the first video, but I got the idea from the second one.

Here is my card  http://www.duhnproductions.com/Pics/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pid=3317#top_display_media

I did find that the hardest part to this card was picking the right stamps and colours. 

Thank you for a fun challenge.  I think I'll be using this technique more often.

Beth, your card is awesome.  I agree, I am still trying to decide what stamps will work for it.  Maybe today!

Beth, your card is great! I have made several backgrounds and now I need to decide which one to use! This was a fun technique! :smile:

I made quite a few backgrounds and made 2 cards with them. On the flower card I used solid flower stamps and on the Christmas card I used a snowflake stamp. I combined the Christmas card with the Christmas All Year challenge.

Beth and April, love love love your cards!

I have had my image and inks out for this but we've had a death in the family and I haven't had time to work on it. I'm gonna try it out soon! I also wondered how perarlescent inks would look. I'm kind of afraid to mix two so I thought I would do one and then Marybeth mix it with a chalk ink or dye ink.

LeighAnn this was a fun challenge, I used the same stamp set for my smackdown as I did my main flowers, using the biggest flower in the set, I love how the base flower gave it a pebble look when stamped like that.  I posted a side view of it in the gallery http://www.duhnproductions.com/Pics/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pid=3334#top_display_media  to show off the background a little more but I will try and attach a more straight on picture here.

I don't have a completed project, but I wanted to at least try this technique before the end of the month.  I am thinking darker colors might work better but here is a background.

Lovely card, Connie!

Heidi, I like the airy feel of your stamped piece! I think darker colors could work well too with those images.

I made a card but haven't had a chance to get it uploaded. I still have a few hours left!

Thanks for taking my challenge, everyone!
