My Friend "Thumped" Card

We just got back from the meeting in Springfield. I am exhausted, but we had a great time! Here is one of the projects we made last month using the new "My Friend" stamp set and Lace Ribbon Border Punch from the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. Do you love the colors? They are the new In Colors: Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade. (Click here for info about my In Color Product Share.)

The mottled color on the leaf images is created with the "thumping" technique. First, ink your stamp in the lighter color (Lucky Limeade on this card), then use the darker marker with the broad tip and "thump" or tap the marker on the inked rubber. Then, stamp! Here's a close-up of what it looks like:
