Technique Junkies Blog Hop!

We are ringing in the Holidays for the September Technique Junkies Blog Hop.  This release features Halloween and Christmas for your upcoming holiday crafting.  The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team  will be hosing a blog hop to showcase the new holiday stamps and spark creative ideas for your festive inking.

Pat is again offering 15% off all September Release Stamps for one week!  In addition to new stamps, Technique Junkies has added more new products to the store including stencils, art anthology colorations, Prills, and a variety of fun dimensional mediums perfect for those who like to play with ink.

My first card uses the Color Sandwich Technique from the Simple & Easy Inking CD for the background.  The inks used were Twisted Citron, Black Soot, and Ripe Persimmon.  Once all my colors were laid down I inked Versamark through the Spider Web Tim Holtz Stencil and applied clear powder.  This added some texture without taking away from the technique.  The focal image is “Black Cat SD615,” which I embossed then watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The sentiment “Fright Night SDX054” was again stamped over a Spider Web stenciled background of Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.

My second card uses the “Depth of Field Technique also from the Simple & Easy Inking Techniques CD”.  This worked so well with the Set of 6 stamps in “Christmas Trees #SS045.”  I love the variety of trees in this set and can’t wait to make more cards using it.  After creating the depth of field background, I did some inlayed die cutting using the Papertrey Ink “Peace” die.  To make it pop-up I cut out four “peace” words and stacked them up.  The colors used are from Hero Arts Shadow inks in Vanilla, Royal Red, Charcoal and Field Green.

My next two cards feature the stunning sentiment called, “Merry Christmas #SD654.” This sentiment is so beautiful on it’s own I wanted to keep my cards very clean and simple.  I heat embossed the image on both cards and added sequins for some embellishment. The first cards background die is from Our Daily Bread and the second is Memory Box.
