A new technique for me

In the magazine I get as a demonstrator they showed us a technique I had never tried before. Take a peice of felt and put some random drops of different colored reinkers on it. Then use that piece of felt like an ink pad. I used that technique on this card. The reinkers I used were Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron. I like the effect I got. Very cool. You can't tell in the photo but I stamped the tower and then cut it out.
For this card I tried another new-ish technique. I've done reflection cards before but used wax paper. For this one I used the smooth side of my stamp-a-ma-jig to create the reflection. I sponged the water and then used a marker to make the ripples.
This is a simple card, pretty self explanitory.
I love this new embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper. There are a few other new things on this card too, including the vintage brad, cardstock and the stamp set.

These were so fun to get in the mail... thanks so much!!! I wondered how you got the mixed colours on the Eiffel Tower card... thanks for sharing! I got comments about all the cards you made at my classes last weekend.
