Pat Huntoon, owner of Technique Junkies has a few cards on her blog, featuring my designs from this release.
These stamps are so new, I literally picked up my set at her house on the way to the airport so I could work with them this week. But while I make some things to share with you, I’ll be featuring the new stamps each day, during this week. The first two are:
This background features a bunch of vintage receipts. To make this card, I inked the stamp with several colors of Stazon Midi: Jet Black, Claret and Blue Hawaii. Then I masked off each section of the background with sticky notes and sponged Distress Ink in Scattered Straw, Tea Dye and Victorian pink to seperate each of the images into a collage. The sentiment is from the S546 Things I Want to Do set.
P025 Let’s Face It 6 (don’t giggle, we released this one sooner than 4 & 5, you aren’t missing anything, yet!).
I inked this stamp with Momento Luxe in Toffee Crunch, for the face, and Tuxedo Black, for the hair. I used chalks to color her face and apply makeup. The background was added after stamping, by using the release paper from the stamp as a mask, and placing stencils over the top. I then sprayed Art Anthology Colorations in Patience (pink) and Warm (neutral brown) over the stencils. I picked up the Patience color with a brush and applied it to her lips. I diecut the sentiment with a Spellbinders deckle rectangle and stamped SDX055 Different Flowers in Stazon Midi Ganache color. Finally, I added a jeweled flower to her hair.
As I mentioned, I was out of town on the official release day, so I wasn’t able to participate in the blog hop for the Technique Junkies May Releases. But I would encourage you to take a look. Lots of pretty and inspiring work!
