Technique Junkies – Japanese Maple

Hello fellow Technique Junkie Friends.  Today I’m bringing you some inky goodness with a fall theme using a fabulous Technique Junkies stamp called “Vintage Botanical Japanese Maple S#336” available at the Technique Junkies Store.  This stamp is gorgeous for this time of the year.

I used an oldie but a goodie Technique Junkie Newsletter technique called, “Pigment Spritzed Tutorial,” from June/July 2009.  I began by applying multiple colors of pigment ink in yellow, oranges, and browns. I then continued to stamp without reinking and then sprayed Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays over the stamped image. The initial technique calls for the creation of your own spray by using reinker and perfect pearls, but I was lazy. LOL.

To create the background I cut out the image using a Simon Says Stamp stitched card die and punched holes in each corner.  I then strung dark jute to create a frame and finished off with a bit of distress ink through a screen for texture.

I’m sending this card to my Technique Junkies 1 on 1 friend.  This is a great group of other Technique Junkies who swap 1 card per month.  It’s a great way to see all the great Technique Junkies stamps in real life. As always, stop by and check out all the new goodies at the Technique Junkies store.

By for now,

The Crafty Nurse

  1. Wow, this is breathtakingly beautiful. Those leaves look so nice, especially at this time of year. I just might have to put it on my wish list.


  2. In a word…awesome or fabulous or breathtaking…how ’bout all three. So that’s three words. Here’s another three…I LOVE it!
