The card turned out super cute. If you look closely at the palm tree itself, you will notice some variation in the coloring. This is a technique called "thumping" and is SOOO fun. I first colored my image with marker directly on the rubber with the lighter colored ink in both the Creamy Carmel and Kiwi Kiss. Then I took my marker in the darker colors (Garden Green and Chocolate Chip) and thumped randomly over the image to give it the two-tone look. I just LOVE it!!! Then a little shading on the ground with some gray, and wa-la! Whatcha think? Dad was tickled when he got the card in the mail! Can't wait for February!
