Flowing Zen


It's July 1st - Release day at Technique Junkies! We have some awesome new stamps for you, and all of them are 15% off through June 8th! No codes are needed, just put them in your shopping cart and the discount will be applied at checkout. 

Here is the Gotta Have it All Bundle, and a little preview of the new stamps:

A new background stamp #S909 Flowing Zen was released this month. I had a great time creating with it!

Without further chatter, here are my cards for today's hop:

For this first card, I used some Distress Oxide inks and blending brushes, and created a background, using #S909 Flowing Zen. Then, I stamped #SD440 ATC Better With Friends, using some Versafine Black Ink. I'm pleased with the final outcome and hope you like it!

For this card, I tried something a little different.  I stamped the #S909 Flowing Zen with a purple ink in one direction, then turned my cardstock and stamped again in the other direction. The sentiment is from the new release set #SS136 Lighthouse Sentiments.  I matted the panel onto purple cardstock, then cut a 'frame' out of the purple and glued it over top of the stamped panel. This was then mounted onto a white card base, and voila! Very simple, pretty card!

This was 'one of those cards' that I couldn't get to photograph well. The colors are actually very bright and vibrant, not dull and washed out. It's a cloudy, rainy day here - perhaps that contributed. Anyway, what a fun card!  I stamped the #S909 Flowing Zen and colored it with Copic Markers, Then I stamped #SD1104 Boring Hair, colored it with Copics, and matted each piece onto green, white, then green again. The thought bubble was done by stamping onto white cardstock, and wadding up a piece of saran wrap, and dabbing the Jade colored ink onto the cardstock. I used a fine point marker to 'stitch' the lower section of the thought bubble.

Note: In my next life, I will most definitely have hair like this!!!

So....which one is your favorite?

I hope you like these fun new releases, and can't wait for you to see the rest of this release!

Your cards are lovely. Alot of colouring in your last card which really draws me in. The birds go perfect with your background. Your middle card is calming.

Fabulous projects as always Patti. I can't believe Technique Junkies is still around. I haven't seen that name in many years. I will have to check them out. Well I love the rainbow effect of color in background of #1 and the black images pop nicely. But I also LOVE the rainbow of color in her hair! Nice designs chick!
