Technique Junkies – Pug’s the Word

Hello Junkies

I’m here today with an ATC that is sure to put a smile on the face of your swap partner using the February Technique Junkies stamp called, “Pugs & Kiss #SD718”. This stamp is a perfect size for use on your ATC’s and very easy to fussy cut.

After making a standard ATC background which is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, I cut a slightly smaller piece of sticky back canvas and watercolored that with some beautiful Quinacridone Gold. I stamped the sentiment directly on the sticky back canvas and wish I would have used Misty Tool because I wouldn’t have had to put down so much pressure somewhat distorting the stamp. I “fixed” my error by coming back in with a Faber Castell Pitt marker.  I love that trick!

My pug was colored using Distress Markers adding depth by using the folds of his skin for where I put in the shadow.  I colored his eyes with several colors to give them life.  Isn’t he adorable?

Sure hope you find some time to get your fingers inky today and I can’t wait to share the new March Technique Junkies stamps with you on 1st.

See you then!

  1. So adorable. Colouring in the folds and eyes a variety of colours, really brings the image to life.
