Gettin' All Jazzy with Technique Junkies

Hello Junkies!
Karen McAlpine with you today getting all Jazzy with the Junkies. Check out the awesome Sax player from Technique Junkies.  I love this background too.  I thought it looks so art deco. Just perfect for the 1930's style Jazz musician.  The images were stamped on velum for a stained glass kind of feel. Both images are from the April New Releases from Technique Junkies.


Materials List:
Stamps: SaxophonistMosaic Scallops, and You Are Amazing Sentiment all from Technique Junkies
Ink: Black Stazon
CS: Bright green
Velum: clear and green
Yarn
Silver Dots




Make it:
  • Make a card from green CS
  • On green velum, stamp the Mosaics Scallop Background with black ink
  • Glue to the card base
  • On clear velum, stamp the Saxophonist with black ink
  • Add to the card
  • Add the silver dots

  • Stamp the sentiment with black ink on green CS and add to card
  • Tie yarn in a bow and glue to card
I particularly like the Sax player as my husband is a jazz musician.  Although he does play the trumpet.  Because I stamped on green velum, I did not have to do any coloring on the background to get the stained glass look. How easy is that!!??
Thanks for stopping by!!  See you again soon.

The background stamp works awesomely as art deco, never thought of that. I was thinking Asian, silly me. Hope your husband likes your pretty card. xoxo, Aimeslee
