 As my stamping took shape, I met the Technique Junkies- that was in 2004.  I joined in ATC swaps with other 'Junkies'. Not only do I have samples of many other artists work, I also get to see techniques IRL that I may not have had the time to try- OR- I get to see a technique in more than one sample.
  Here is an ATC I made using the Pearly Gelato technique:
  This is a portion of an image and a sentiment from Technique Junkies.

Here is this same ATC on a card:
It is always fun to look at images and see how they can be added to an ATC. One of my favorite Asian stamps at Technique Junkies is a background Geishas stamp.
 Here I added the Geisha's separately- to background(s) of Pasted Delusions. These ATC's were the first to go in my local monthly exchange.

 More pasted Delusions backgrounds with images from Lt-Rt: Firecracker Designs by Pamela (store closed), and the rooster  and sentiment are by SmARTworks (now closed), and the Owl is a pre-colored digital image from DeeDee digi's.

 Would you like one of the rooster or theatre ATC's?  Just leave a comment below with a way for me to reach you and I will mail one to you!

We have an ATC swap sign-up right now at Technique Junkies- would you like to join in?  Just drop me a line @ Shellymc2 at 

Have a great day!
