I guess I could claim that everything I've learned about stamping I learned from other stampers along the way. But that's not really what Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink is talking about so I will just talk about 2 techniques that I learned from other stampers.
This card was made with scraps on the table and the limited edition Four of A Kind set that I got at CHA. I love that you can use flower stamps for other things like the sun or wheels or the feathers of a turkey like I did here. The sentiment is also Papertrey Ink from Friendship Jar set.
The first technique is 2 color stamping where you ink the stamp in one color and then ink the edges of the image with a darker color. The next step wasn't part of the original lesson but I always lightly mist with water before stamping for a more fluid (pardon the pun) coloring.
Beate Johns showed me a better way of using a sponge blending tool starting off the card and working your way onto the card for a softer look and no square bits on your projects. This is hard to do with a piece of paper under your card so I use an evil page protector from an even more evil old "magnetic" photo album - the kind that kill photos. I took one apart - ok it FELL apart - and I found that the protector was perfect for this purpose.
I made this thinking of Thanksgiving. Non card makers and men don't think that far ahead. My dad thought it was, "You're invited you turkey."
