Big Shot, Cards, Technique, UDI Color Challenge

UDI Color Challenge #197

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #197

This weeks color challenge uses a technique called “thumping” or what I call “spanking”.


1. Ink up your image with the lightest colored ink pad.

2. Take a darker colored marker and start tapping or “thumping” on the image to add darker spots.

3. Continue to “thump” the marker on the image until you added enough spots to create a marbled look.

4. Huff (breathe heavily) on the stamp to re-moisten the inked image. Now stamp on the cardstock and finish your project.
