Earthy Inspiration

It's Technique Thursday!!!  Thank you for joining me for more Technique Junkie inspiration!  If you haven't hopped through the Technique Junkie Welcome Hop--that went live yesterday, go ahead and check it out!  I'm honored to be part of such a fabulous team of artists!

Today, I have two projects to share.  Both showcase new releases from Technique Junkies.  The first, is shown above.  For my background, I used the Alcohol Stencil technique from the TJ  Sensational Stencil CD.  My muted earthy colors are the perfect backdrop for Bird and Butterflies.  Using Stazon ink, I stamped the image on vellum and colored it on the opposite side.  I have such a conflict when it comes to creating background pieces!  I never want to cover them up!

I'm partial to giraffe images because they were my Gram's favorite!  I just love this new image called Stand Tall.  Not only is the grouping of giraffes eye catching, but I love the sentiment, as well!   For this background, I use a technique from the  Technique Junkie Simple and Easy Inking Techniques Remix CD.  This is a great CD that is perfect for any level of stamper!  The technique used here is called It Takes Two.  Additional stamps used to complete this background are  Lipstick Kisses  and  Burlap.  For embellishments, I continued the earthy feel with a piece of canvas, twine and some wooden buttons.

If you missed the hop, please take some time to meet the Designers and see their work using lots of new goodies from Technique Junkies!  To make things even better, there's a SALE happening right now!!  (Sale is over April 8th so,!)

Go, be awesome!
TTFN, Jane
