Favorite technique

My favorite technique - thank you ArtyGirlz for a great challenge - has to be paint. I love doing painted backgrounds, and frequently, if the paint is thick, I will stamp into it, thus pulling out the paint and revealing the original background. Being thrifty, the background usually comes from a cereal box, a rice package or the likes. This means an added dash of surprise color coming through, instead of white cardstock.


The swirl stamp in the upper left corner reveals beautiful colors underneath, and the texture seems just luscious. Hey, a bit of glitter and pearlescent paint is always in order...
