Layered Background technique with Stampin' Up! My Friend

I saw a gorgeous card with this technique and now I can't remember where or who, but I did happen to bookmark the technique video she referenced.  Here's my card using the new stamp set My Friend by Stampin' Up! 
I used River Rock as my base.  I also used River Rock ink for the background technique.  The inks used for the image are Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, and Island Indigo.  You can see the video for this technique here.
Because I loved the way these new In Colors worked together on this image I wanted to try another card with the same inking technique. I eliminated the embossing on this one.
This time I used Pear Pizazz, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo inks.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  I'm here to help.
Thanks for stopping by!
