Technique Junkies – Metallic Vibes

Hey Junkies!!

The Crafty Nurse here with some metallic mid-week inspiration using a stamps from the July Release. You have until July 9th to get 15% off any of the July Release stamps.

I don’t know about you, but as a true technique junkie, I have oodles of supplies. When I lived up in the New Jersey area I had the good fortune to go to the annual Ranger warehouse sale in Tinton, New Jersey.  If you live anywhere near that area I recommend checking it out.  They usually announce the sale dates for the fall event on the Ranger Blog and Facebook.

Today, I’m using inks from one of my adventures called, Posh Rainbow Metallic Inks by Ranger.  I applied them on my nonstick mat and dipped in. I love using this technique with Distress Inks too and Pat has the Distress Oxides in the store.  The technique of dipping can be found on the Artistic Effects CD.

After creating a fabulous background I stamped “Positive Mind SD7809” with Archival Ink on a separate piece of card stock and applied Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves for color.

To further isolate the sentiment, I created a frame using Recollections chipboard painted with more of the metallic inks. I popped up the frame with foam tape and added a shaker window.

I’d love for you to share the cards over at the Facebook group using some of your supplies combined with Technique Junkies stamps. You still have time to enter the “Drips” challenge for a chance to win prizes.  Need more inspiration?  Check out the Pinterest board for Technique Junkies.

Finally, enjoy 10% off in the store using TJ10Kathy.
