Technique Junkies July 2019 Release
It’s time for a new release over at Technique Junkies! This month, there is no release for Mitten State Stamps, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get some of the great new stamps that TJ is releasing! Lookie:
This is the first card that I made, and since I was trying to get all these cards done in one day, I relied on some previously made backgrounds. After I stamped the Sailing Panel on watercolor paper and watercolored with Daniel Smith Watercolors, I took a background I had previously created with Distress Oxide Broken China ink and stamped on top using the Texture Waves with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink. Adding the new Smooth Sailing stamp for the greeting was a natural.
I again turned to Sandy Alnock for inspiration in how to color this under-the-sea scene. I love these funky fish and colored them first with Copic markers, then used more Copic markers to color over top. I used my colorless blender to add bubbles and added some clear Wink of Stella to the bubbles to add a little sparkle.
The third card I made with the Textured Nautilus background used a gel printed background I had made with, again Distress Oxide inks. I simply stamped on top with Scrapbook.com’s white pigment ink, then added the Dream Without Fear greeting stamped and embossed with Ranger Platinum embossing powder. The little spiral clip seemed like a perfect embellishment to me!
My final card I originally intended to color this beautiful Summer Bouquet, but once I stamped it in black, I was struck by the beautiful graphic quality and decided to just make a black and white card with a pop of yellow. I covered the background by stamping the Summer Bouquet stamp, then added the Get Well Soon stamp in Versamark Onyx Black heat embossed with clear EP. I added some Alexadra Renke washi, black Nuvo Drops, and some black baker’s twine.
I’m amazed I was able to create all these beautiful cards in just two days, but when you have awesome Technique Junkies stamps, it’s not really that hard!
All these stamps are on sale through June 8th and you can get an additional discount using my code TJJan10.
