Technique Junkies Design Team Treasure Hunt!!

Good morning all of you. This is the first stop on our December/January Design Team Treasure Hunt. We are all glad to have you come aboard looking for the TREASURE! Pat will have a wonderful prize for some lucky treasure hunter.

Vada used the Spritzed Stone from the Dec/Jan 2209 issue of the Technique Junkies newsletter. The stamps are from Alluring Impressions and from the December 2006 Club Scrap kit called Ivory Elegance.

Vada used alcohol markers from Studio 2 in these colors: True blue -, Grass Green, Jacaranda, and also used theCopic Colorless blender to "bleach out" the flesh parts. (A Copic blender pen does not really "blend" the colors but it removes color.) The size of the card is 5 1/4 inches square so this needed a 5 1/2 inch square envelope. The punches are from Martha Stewart and Emagination.

(from Judy) I love Artistic Outpost stamps! The rubber is so thick and it gives such a wonderful impression when you ink up which ever stamp you choose. I am so glad Artistic Outpost is a vendor/sponsor for Technique Junkies. Check the home page ( to find the Artistic Outpost discount code for the month.

I chose stamps the set called The Outpost. I used my own cloud template to sponge colors for the sky. I colored my images with my Copic markers. I added some Flower Soft in varying fall colors to give an autumn look to the tree. Here is south central Pennsylvania we still have some beautiful leaves on the trees!

I used the technique Antique Glimmer Mist from the December/January issue of the TJ newsletter. I used Lipstick and Fired Brink Distress Inks - along with Tattered Angels Bronze Glimmer Mist to create the background paper. I love this technique! It is so easy to get a fabulous shimmery look. I used a Spellbinders Borderabilities to cut the bottom edge of the background paper.
