Motion Swap Card

I got this card at the Close To My Heart convention, too. It's by Sharon Esau.

What I liked about it is that it shows motion. She used the Grey Wool, Grey Flannel and Black ink pads. It's really cool! I think you could also do first-, second- and third generation stamping with a black ink pad, but the ink coverage wouldn't be as nice. This is better.

I've also seen this same technique with a skiing stamp set. This technique looks best with a solid stamp.
