My tip for the day is to try stamping your image in a lighter coloured ink. For my card I used Memento Desert Sand (beige). When you colour the image it gives it the appearance that you hand painted it. I've been wanting to try this technique for a while and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. Because I was cutting out my image to add some dimension, I added some grey shadow around the outside.
