Relax, Calm, Renew...

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog. 

Great news! There's still time to save money on the new release stamps at Technique Junkies! We have some awesome new stamps for you, and all of them are 15% off through August 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:

This stamp is wonderful. It says exactly what we all need to hear, and DO for ourselves now and then. We simply don't take time to just relax, calm, and renew ourselves!

So, for this card, I took a piece of watercolor cardstock, and spritzed it with Dolphin Cove, Chestnut Mare, and Dazzle Shimmering Bliss. This panel was set aside to dry, prior to adhering it directly onto the card base. While it dried, I stamped the image/sentiment #SD1139 Relax Your Body, onto a scrap piece of white cardstock, colored the hammock with Copic markers, and spritzed lightly with the Shimmering Bliss. Once dry, this piece was matted with the same color as the card base, and popped up with dimensional foam. 

Next up, is another super easy, beautiful card.

It's a bit hard to see, but the background uses #S417 Cotton Lawn, stamped in blue ink. The image/sentiment #SD1139 Relax Your Body, was then stamped with blue ink onto the Cotton Lawn panel. I used my stamp positioner, and stamped repeatedly, so the focal image would be darker than the background.

So....which do you like best?

I am excited for you to see the rest of this release!

Beautiful job on using this inviting hammock, I love to just lay in the hammock and sway - as long as it is not too hot or there are not too many bugs. The colors are beautiful.
