 Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog. I have 2 cards to share today, using two beautiful new release stamp sets, #S921 Lighthouses and #SS136 Lighthouse Sentiments , from Technique Junkies

Here's my first card:

Wow! This is such a beautiful release to work with! To create the background for this card, I squeezed a bit of blue, brown, and white acrylic paint onto my Gel Press, and brayered it a bit. I laid the #S909 Flowing Zen stamp onto the Gel Press, pressed gently, and carefully removed the stamp, and replaced it with a piece of white cardstock. I let the cardstock dry, then stamped the sentiment and image with Versafine brown ink. Finished this one off with a nautical die cut and a little brown twine. I love how 'stormy' the background ended up looking.

Moving on to card two:

The focal panel was colored with Copics. Once I finished coloring, I spritzed water onto a bit of Distress Oxide Inks, and laid the card down, moving it here and there, until I got the 'perfect' amount of splatters. I grabbed a scrap for the sentiment, and put it down into the ink prior to stamping the sentiment. 

These were both pretty easy to create, and I'm having a lot of fun with the July release!

So glad you stopped by today!

Wonderful work. Love the lighthouse stamp. The first card is intriguing in those colours

Both projects are fabulous, Patty! I particularly love the colors in the first one because they are the colors of the sand and sea! Beautifully done!
