Technique Junkies Design Team Post: Let’s Face It

Hey Junkies!

I’m back with you today with a little more inspiration from Pat’s August release. I had so much fun during our blog hop this past weekend today I’m featuring another card using “Let’s Face It 5” from the Palettini Collection.

The background started with Distress Paint in Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade.  Once that dried I applied black paint through a Heidi Swapp Stencil using the “Stencil Turn” Technique on the Sensational Stencil CD.

For my image I stamped “Let’s Face It 5 #P030” on book paper using Adirondack Espresso Ink. Her face is colored with Liquitex Fluid Ink in Burnt Sienna diluted with water, the lips are Twinkling H20’s in Hopeful Honeysuckle, and the Eyes are FW Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic in Genesis Green. Okay, Okay – yes, I have a lot of inks…..

For her headpiece, I stamped it on Amy Tangerine’s Rise & Shine paper and clear embossed.  I fussy cut the head piece and applied it back onto the image.  Once everything was dry, I applied Tim Holtzs’ “Distress Glaze” because all my mediums were water based and I didn’t want it to run when I applied the Gel Medium.

Once the gel medium dried, I created depth by applying a Pitt Artist Pen in Brown around her head piece.  This is a great way to complete your paper piecing so it doesn’t look disconnected or out of place.  To finish, I colored the flowers with more FW Pearlescent Paint in Waterfall Green and called her done!

I thrilled you stopped by today and encourage you to subscribe to the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog  for tons of inspiration.

I also want to remind you there is still a few days left to take advantage of the 15% off all new August Stamps at the Technique Junkies store.

By for now,
