Hello fellow Technique Junkie Friends. Today I’m bringing you some inky goodness with a fall theme using a fabulous Technique Junkies stamp called “Vintage Botanical Japanese Maple S#336” available at the Technique Junkies Store. This stamp is gorgeous for this time of the year.
I used an oldie but a goodie Technique Junkie Newsletter technique called, “Pigment Spritzed Tutorial,” from June/July 2009. I began by applying multiple colors of pigment ink in yellow, oranges, and browns. I then continued to stamp without reinking and then sprayed Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays over the stamped image. The initial technique calls for the creation of your own spray by using reinker and perfect pearls, but I was lazy. LOL.
To create the background I cut out the image using a Simon Says Stamp stitched card die and punched holes in each corner. I then strung dark jute to create a frame and finished off with a bit of distress ink through a screen for texture.
I’m sending this card to my Technique Junkies 1 on 1 friend. This is a great group of other Technique Junkies who swap 1 card per month. It’s a great way to see all the great Technique Junkies stamps in real life. As always, stop by and check out all the new goodies at the Technique Junkies store.
By for now,

Here’s the Sketch:
For my card today I broke out my favorite Kuretake watercolors. I started by stamping the Repeat Impressions Large Butterfly 9110-L with archival ink to ensure it didn’t bleed. I made a few different colored panels to match the butterflies and ran them through the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder to give some dimension. I used the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle to create the top layer. The sentiment is cut from an oval label die by My Favorite Things and stamped with Repeat Impressions Happy Birthday 1113-D. I finished off the card with some black splatters and jute I got from Hobby Lobby and called it a wonderfully colorful spring card!
Card made with Bazzill’s Autumn Harvest paper pack and a QKR Digital Image colored with copics. The sentiment is Simon Says stamp as is the label die it’s on. I edged the card with distress ink and called it a fall card to send to Operation Write Home.
