November Release Day - It's a Hop!

Welcome! Today is November 1st, and it is time for the final Technique Junkies new stamp release of 2015. To celebrate the 13 new stamps being released today, The TJ design team has a Blog Hop featuring the new stamps. All of the November released stamps are 15% off through November 8th, too! Your discount will be applied at checkout.

And don't fear, we haven't forgotten about the 30 Days of Christmas -- it is featured on my blog, using the new stamps with a tutorial, at the end of the hop.

The hop starts here -- and I have two cards for you featuring one of the new background stamps called The Bridge.  I prepared the stamp in two different ways -- the first using Copics to color:

For the sentiment, I used a stamp from the TJ line called The Open Road. I cut the first line of the stamp apart to get the words I wanted : )

For the second Bridge example, I used a combination of markers and Art Anthology paints and sprays to color the background. The sentiment is from the Einstein Quotes set:
I wanted a "twilight" look on the second -- I think I achieved it, don't you?

Okay, enough from me -- at least until the end of the hop! Here is the lineup:

Pat- both the cards are stunning. When I saw the stamps I was ???? what I would do with them. You are so creative and now I no longer wonder! Thanks for sharing and the motivation.
