Thump, Thump Away!

By the title no doubt you are realizing that I did the thumping technique on this simple no layer card. I used images from Gina K. Designs Festive Foliage stamp set. I did he solid images first with an inking from a pad and then with a marker I thumped or pounced onto the image using a different color and then stamped it. That is called thumping.


I had to do my thumping with some Zig water color markers so it might not look as good as if I had some inky Tombos or Memento pens. But I worked with what I did have on hand. I did not think Copics would work.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Thump, Thump Away!

Thanks for the visit and I just love to read all the comments you leave me. I will be back later today with another post. I got behind due to weather conditions so had to leave the computer alone. Until then take care.

God bless,
Verna

I think your thumping with the zigs turned out beautifully and this was a good image to do that technique. It's always fun to see how well the techniques work so well, when you adapt to what you have on hand. Good job! TFS

I really wanted to enter that challenge, but ran out of time. Wouldn't have thought to try it with Zigs, but you ended up with a lovely card!

An absolutely beautiful CAS Christmas card! Your thumping with the Zigs produced perfect results, I think. My thumping has never turned out this good. I do love this card!
