Technique Junkies Blog Hop...A Lot More Fabulous

I was quite smitten with two of the new release items, Particle Flow, and More Fabulous. I decided to combine them on one card. More Fabulous is such a classy image, that I had to use some soft, girly colors, and heat emboss for some shimmer and shine!

Here's my card:

Don't you just love the Particle Flow stamp in the background? I stamped it repeatedly, and used a 2 color heat embossing technique, embossing half of the image in blue, and half in pink, alternating on each image. You will be seeing a lot of Particle Flow

The white was just too stark on the focal panel, so I used an older, retired Technique Junkies stencil, (Diamond Fade by A Colorful Life Designs) and some Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

The entire card was inked using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I wiped off the excess off of the embossed images, and spritzed some water on, giving some great little splotches.

I hadn't intended to add the heat embossed strip down the left side, but needed to cover up a huge OOPS, where I smeared some RED ink! in the world did that happen? 

Anyway, hope you liked the card!  

Hop on, my friends to see what this talented Technique Junkies Design Team has to share with you!

Welcome to the team, Patti! So happy to have you!! :)

Your card is truly stunning. I've never tried the technique yous used for your gorgeous background. The pink is so lovely against the blue/turquoise. I agree that the white background on your sentiment would be a little bold and just love how you thought to stencil the bg. Whoop Whoop!

I love this card, Patti! And I love the idea of using two colors of embossing powder. I really need to give that a try, but first I've got to figure out what stamp I could do that with. As always, thanks for the inspiration.
