Day of Gratitude Friend card

Here is a card that I will be demonstrating at my last Stampin' Technique & Scrapbook Club.  I can't believe it is almost the end.  I have had so much fun and am going to miss getting together every month - oh well I guess there is always next year.  The technique that I am demonstrating is called Color Emerging.  If you look close at the stamped image you will see some of the image stamped in Crumb Cake (top left) and some of the image stamped in Blushing Bride (bottom right).  How did I do that......well you take a piece of neutral card stock (here I used Very Vanilla) and stamp your image a couple of times in different colors of Classic Ink (I used Crumb Cake & Blushing Bride), then you stamp your image again using VersaMark.  Pour Clear Embossing Powder over top, shake excess off and heat set.  After you have heated the image take a brayer or sponge (I used a sponge) and cover with a darker color of Classic Ink (I used Early Espresso).  Once you have finished the sponging or brayer part then wipe embossed image off with a tissue and voila you have a card with the Color Emerging Technique on it.  I can't take all of the credit for this technique.  I came across it on Kimberly Van Diepen's blog.  I was blown away with the card she had made.  Here it is here.  You will have to scroll down a bit - I think it is the second card on her "a few techniques" page. This card amazed me so I thought why not try it with the big stamp in the Days of Gratitude stamp set.  I hope my club members like their last technique that I will be demonstrating to them for the year.
