Try a new Technique - go on!

This week's Friends of Speedy TV challenge is to try a new technique.  Now I have to say this was the push I needed to try soot stamping.  I had read about it but thought I might set the paper on fire so never gave it a try.  

As you can see I did coloured soot stamping applying ink to the glossy card before making it sooty.  I waited until my husband had gone out to try this in case he thought I was mad!  Mind you not very sensible because if I had set the paper alight someone to put it out might have been useful!!!
Seriously as long as you are careful it is fine and I quite like the end result using the butterfly stamp from Daffodil Greetings. The tutorial can be found on Splitcoast here

Please join in the fun this week at FOSTV - it is challenge 22 and you could win the set North American Woods which as you can see is a great nature set.
