 Even though I am not on the hop today, I still wanted you to see my card.  This is one of my favorite techniques to use - DIP or Direct to Paper.  You use the actual stamp pad corner and swipe across your card stock.  I love the end results of this technique!  It worked perfect for a silhouette card.

 I made this one for the SCS sketch challenge totally forgetting African Veldt was being featured!  Well, I had to share with all of you too!!  Just a fun CAS card~~
Just in case you haven't hopped, here are the other DT's and their blogs:
