A Different Point of View

Hello Junkies!
  I recently joined a swap on the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo Group themed Haiku Bunny.  I was in a creative mood and did not feel like making them all the same, so thought I would change each card by using various TJ techniques on the backgrounds.

I cut out the bunny image and placed it on this background made using Faux Handmade Paper from 6/08 newsletter. I added shimmer to the bunny by adding Spica glitter pen to the flowers and the neck 'scarf'. I also made Faux Twine using a TJ technique.

I used Alcohol Ink Splatters from April/May 2013 newsletter on this card and the DP has a gold in it, so I used a Y21 Copic marker on the script and a red Spica glitter pen on the flowers.

On this card- I dug into my TJ archive box : )  and pulled out a shimmery piece of pink and punched it as a border. Don't forget to label your techniques on the back so you can identify them at a later date!

My final card uses a simple Cuttlebug Highlight technique from the Oct 2008 Newsletter. The Poppy colored Washi paper is from my China Trip- and has a gorgeous gold shimmer in it.

I hope I have inspired you to open some of your older TJ techniques and see what you can create!

Bingo Blast Graduation

Hi Tricia here.  I made this graduation card for my cousins' daughter. 
Her school colors are black and orange and I just love the way the Bingo Blast technique, from the TJ newsletter, goes with graduation cards.  It makes me feel like it's fireworks.  I used Distress Stains and new Distress paints.
The digital stamp is from Mo's digital pencil.  I cut her out using the out of the box technique.  I colored this image with copics.
I hope Miranda likes the card and thanks for stopping by to visit.
Have a crafty day!
