Trying something new or two...

 Hi bloggy friends!  Long time no blog huh...did you forget about me?
I know I miss it too, anyhoo

Did you see the new Lawnscaping challenge?
and I've been dieing to try these two.

1.  Reverse stamping
(check out the Lawnscaping blog for a fab tutorial by Chrissie Tobas HERE)

2.  Adding texture with Colorless Blender 
aka Copic 0
(color image then use colorless to add tiny dots)


Okay so here are those two techniques put into action!
Be kind it is my first time...literally I didn't practice I just went for it.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Critters on the farm"
