Technique Junkies – Contemporary Flowers

Hello Junkie Friends.  Today I’m bringing you a couple of clean and simple cards using another August Release stamp called “Contemporary Flowers S#638.”  I absolutely love this stamp and have been using it like crazy!

My first card is simply heat embossed with clear powder over Versafine Black Onyx ink.  The sentiment is another August Release called, “Always Hope SD#651.”

My second card features the Spritzed Stone Tutorial from Technique Junkies Newsletter Dec 09/Jan 10′, which uses Copics and 91% alcohol.  I love the way this background came out.  For the sequins, I added stickles in the center to give both shine and cover that little hole.

I hope you’ll join us over at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog for more inky goodness.
