This month’s technique is thumping. I’m not going to lie to you, I hate thumping. I never get it right. I tend to do more of a strategic coloring instead like in September but I gave it a try. I did my thumping on the Stacked Stones background stamp hoping it would be seen as texture.
I watched a video by Jessica Taylor to refresh my memory on thumping but essentially it’s tapping your marker around on your stamp before stamping. I did mine on the Stamparatus so I could stamp multiple times. I first stamped the background in Smoky Slate before using my Basic Black, Basic Gray, and Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Markers for the thumping.
