Every Day..... Color Challenge # 17

Today I decided to use some of my favorite stamps from years past, and some high-gloss paper.  When I had my rubber stamp shop, I had demo days every month.  Some of my favorite stamps to use, no matter what technique I was demoing, were the pear stamps from A Stamp In The Hand.  These are solid image stamps, and I just love using ink pads, markers, paints, you name it on these stamps.  It got so that if I didn't use it at one of my demos people were disappointed.  
Using glossy card stock and Adirondack inks, I inked up the stamps, placing color in different areas by using the edge of the ink pads.  Then I huffed (breathed hard) on the stamp, and stamped.  The lighter images are where I re-stamped without reinking the stamp.  Then I partially inked the pears background stamp (A Stamp In The Hand also) and stamped it here and there on the card.

I usually like to sponge a little color onto the background, but decided to keep this one a little cleaner and simpler.  I love this technique, and the way the inks really show up on the glossy card stock.  

The card is a white glossy card.  I inked the edges with a finger dauber tool using green ink pad to match the pear panel.  I cut the panel with a Spellbinders curved rectangular die.

The little pear charm is one of many charms I have left from when I closed my store.  I have resolved to start using some of the items I have stashed, rather than keep buying new 'stuff.'

This card is for The Daily Marker 30 day challenge, day 17. 

Off now to do some more Zentangles.
