I chose Shari Carroll, and specifically her Stamp Layering technique, which she taught us in March of 2011. Here is my card using her method:
supplies: white textured cardstock, CL428 Earth Flowers, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, S5507 Envelope Pattern, broken china distress ink, CG172 Garden Bouquet, distress markers spritzed with water, CL156 Treasure the Moments, 657773 Antique Flowers & Butterflies stamp and die, VersaFine onyx black ink
I challenged myself to use her technique and mask the borders as well. Here's how I did it: I first masked my card around a rectangular piece of acrylic that I used as a shadow stamp. Then I stamped and embossed the white "bush". Next I inked my acrylic block with tumbled glass and broken china distress inks, spritzed it well with water, and "stamped" that in my open area over the embossed bush. After that was dried, I overstamped the envelope pattern using broken china distress ink. Then I inked my Garden Bouquet stamp using distress markers, spritzed that with water, and overstamped and let that dry. Next I pulled off the masking, overstamped my sentiment, and stamped and die-cut the butterfly and popped it above the card. So if you count the acrylic block stamping as a layer, there are 5 layers of stamping on this card.
