Hello Fellow Junkies!
The Crafty Nurse here with a mixed media journal page using some of the new February Technique Junkie Stamps. I hope you’ve had a chance to check out this fabulous release on the Technique Junkie Design Team page, if not, I encourage you to do so. Pat is also offering all February Release stamps at 15% off until February 8th.
I began my page with Tim Holtz tissue paper then applied distress paint in Vintage Photo, Broken China, and Walnut Stain. I then added a watery layer of gesso and wiped that around with a baby wipe. I then took “Houndstooth Check S665” and stamped over the page in Versamark mark ink. So that you don’t get hard edges, just curl your stamp and roll instead of stamping the entire thing. I then added gold perfect pearls for some shimmer. Over that, I stenciled gold ferro paste over a Tim Holtz’s “traveler” stencil.
The numbers, Paris Tower, and tag are all My Favorite Things dies cut from travel themed paper. On the tag, I stamped the couple from “Vintage Travel Cases PS012″ in Sepia archival ink and the sentiment in black archival ink. I like the way the fade off on the bottom.
The suitcases are also from “Vintage Travel Cases PS012.” I began by stamping different suitcases with a variety of inks. I stenciled over them with Art Anthology “Cracked” stencil and then layered that with rock candy distress stickles and let them dry. I then adhered all the elements with matte gel medium and created shading with a Faber Castell Pit pen in brown. To finish I colored up some wooden planes also with the pitt pen and called it a Technique Junkies Vintage Travel Page.
Well, that’s my page for today, I hope you’ve enjoyed a a little inspiration. I’ll see you in a couple weeks for more fun with the February release at Technique Junkies.
As always, Happy Inking
It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for a color challenge at The House that Stamps Built. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we’ve chosen some traditional colors for the season.
The Challenge is open through Tuesday, February 9th and there is a $25.00 prize for our random winner. You don’t have to use Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you do, an extra entry is waiting for you.
Now let’s get started with the colors we choose this week:
I began by stamping Repeat Impressions “Tumbling Hearts 1210-K” for the background of my card with versamark, then white heat embossed. I die cut a label from My Favorite Things and then stamped “LOVE 1204-I” in black. To jazz it up a bit I then added a pit pen in red around the edges and dotted with the white Uniball Signal White pen. I guess I was in a doodling mood as I added faux stitching and more dots.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with in your color challenge for What If Wednesday at The House that Stamps Built
