Technique Junkies – Just Wing It

Hello Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here today sharing some inspiration using the November release stamp, “Just Wing It”.

The background is created using Distress Ink. Then I heat embossed my image using white powder over the background using my MISTI.  I inked the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and embellished the edges with another gorgeous stamp called, “Toile de Jouy Set of 9” using a grey ink.  I finished off framing the eyes with some pen work and called her done.

 

I hope you and your family are enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend and don’t forget to take time this holiday season to get inky!

This will be my last post for Technique Junkies, at least for a while as I’m taking a break from the team.

Thank you all for your support.

Happy Inking!!

Technique Junkies – Watercolored Painted Rings

Hello Junkies!  I’m here today with a Technique Junkies November release stamp called “Painted Rings” which I painted with Jane Davenports “Mermaid Markers”.  Simply stamp and heat emboss the “Painted Rings” with white powder on 140 lb. watercolor paper.  To color, use your Mermaid Markers by coloring a heavy line on the bottom of the bubble and feather out with your aqua brush.

My focal image is another great stamp called “Typewriter Set”. I also colored this with the Mermaid Markers after stamping and heat embossing over watercolor paper.

I hope you find some time to get crafty today.  Please join us over at the Technique Junkies Facebook Page, we’d love to see you!
