What is the simplest, yet most complicated looking stamping trick? Check this out!

What is the simplest, yet most complicated looking stamping trick? Pull out your rubber stamps and Marvy brush markers to create a masterpiece in seconds! I used stamps by The Local King and Impression Obsession. Isn't it gorgeous?

To achieve this look I used glossy cardstock, colored directly on the rubber stamp with 2 shades of each color (light then dark), huffed and stamped. That's it!! It looks like I took great time and detail to make the look but it was a 60 second deal....if that! Then with a very light color, I stamped the branches background stamp over the image of the bird and flowers.  Pink and blue is one of my favorite color combos for cards.

The base card is from Stampin' Up! and the layer is from my stash. The card's focal point is accented with burlap ribbon from The Paper Studio, Cuttlebug embossing inked with Hero Arts neon ink and pearls from Recollections. The sentiment is an encouraging one from Dylusions.

Please let me know if you have tried this technique or will in the future.
