Technique Junkies Blog Hop!
It’s the first of the month and that means it’s time for a Technique Junkies Blog Hop showcasing the new February release! The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team will provide an amazing selection of inspiration for your enjoyment.
Pat is again offering 15% off all February Release Stamps for one week! In addition to new stamps, Technique Junkies has added a fun new product called Minx, a shimmer ink. This of course is along side some already great art supplies like stencils, art anthology colorations, velvets, and sorbets.
The background on my first card uses “Faux Metal Gelatos from the Artistic Effects CD. I used a Darice brick embossing folder and colored that with a mix of silver, blue, and purple Gelatos to get a stone look. I watercolored my inmate “Mug Shot #SD638” with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Makers after embossing her. The “wonky die” is from My Favorite Things and makes for a great window. I added faux white stitching for more of that black and white contrast and finished off with the fabulous sentiment from “Partners in Crime #SS053.”
My next card features the new stamp, “Drinkin’ and Thinkin’ #SD656.” For those of you who know me know I LOVE COFFEE so I love this stamp. I started by creating a background using the “Distress Stain Dip Technique in the Artistic Effects CD.” I then grabbed the Tim Holtz Coffee Stencil and applied that in Vintage Photo. I stamped “Drinkin’ and Thinkin” then colored her up with Art Anthology Dimensional Paints in “Sunshine and Just Peach by Art Anthology. I finished off with the sentiment from “Simple Sentiments 2, Style B #SS02B.”
My next card uses several of the new stamps. The background is a classic Houndstooth background called, “Houndstooth Check #S665,” The technique is the Distress Stain Dip technique from the Artistic Effects CD. The focal image is from a great travel set called, “Vintage Travel Cases #PS012” which comes with several suit cases, this focal image, and a sentiment which I’ve also used. I added some extra pizazz but dropping on fran’tage embossing powder in copper and heating it from underneath. I distressed the edges with several distress inks in brown and finished off with Black Soot. I colored up some waxy thread with Timeless Colorations by Art Anthology for the final element.
Now, that I’ve shown you what I have to offer, I don’t want you to miss any of the other design teams creativity so I encourage you to start hopping at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog.
