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!

Technique Junkies – Amazing Rainbow

Happy Wednesday Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here today sharing a rainbow of inspiration using the August release stamp, “Amazing Grace #SD776”.

The background is created using Distress Dragging from the February 2007 Subscriber pages. Then using my MISTI, I stamped “Amazing Grace” using Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

 

We hope to see you in the Facebook group and participating in our monthly challenge over at the Design Team Blog.

Technique Junkies – Wings N’ Roses

Hey there Junkies!  The Crafty Nurse here today.

Have you seen those great cards and projects featured on the design team hop yesterday? Wow, what a talented bunch!

Today, I’m here to add another taster from the August release called “Never Stop Flying”.  I anticipate this will be a crowd favorite.

My background started using a Tim Holtz rose stencil and embossing paste.  Once that dried, I sprayed Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst in Azure Sea Aster, Open Arms Amythest, and French Lilac Violet. I then applied a layer of foil tape around the edges to frame out the background.

For my focal image, I began with glossy cardstock using the Alcohol Stencil Technique from the Sensational Stencil CD.  I stamped “Never Stop Flying” with Versafine Black Onyx ink and embossed with clear. I then added additional color to her wings using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers in Lilac and Cobalt Blue, fussy cut her out and used dimensional tape. Those wispy silver pieces coming from behind her are actually the pieces I cut off the edges of foil tape and I liked they way they curled so added them to her wings.  Let your creativity Fly!!!!

We hope to see you in the Facebook group and shopping using the TJ10Kathy discount code over at the Technique Junkies store!  As part of the August Blog Hop, Pat is offering a 15% discount on all the new August Release stamps.
