Good Day Junkies! The Crafty Nurse here with a post from the Technique Junkies May Release.
For this card card I broke out my Distress Inks in Scattered Straw and Abandoned Coral on Smooth Bristol paper to create the technique called, “Color Sandwich” from the Simple & Easy Inking Technique CD. When blending distress inks make sure you start off the page and then move in circular motion toward the card with light consistent pressure. The Bristol Smooth paper is amazing for blending distress inks
I embossed “Chicken MC002” with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and heat set with clear powder, which I prefer to black embossing powder. The sentiment “Needed To Be #553”, fits nicely next to my image and adds a little bit of whimsey needed for the card.
To finish off, I added Viva Pearl Pen in Pearl all over the dots on the “Chicken” image and in black to add interest to the top right corner.
I sure hope you get a chance to stop on over to the new Technique Junkies store and see all the new May release stamps as well as other great new products.

It’s the fourth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge. You have until Tuesday, June 3rd to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.
Here’s the Sketch:
For my card today I stamped Repeat Impressions “Beach Time” 4503-K with Momento ink and colored her with Copic Markers. I created the background using B91, V20 and the Colorless Blender and am pleased with how it came out. The oval dies are from My Favorite Things as is the flag die. The sentiment from Repeat Impressions “Love, Hugs 2509-H” is white heat embossed.
I hope you’ll join us at The House That Stamps Built, you may be our next winner!
