TJ Inkspiration: WWDB Challenge Week One Review and winner

What a fun week we had with the What We Do Best Challenge (WWDB) Challenge! We had wonderful participation from customers and the Technique Junkies Design Team.  I compiled the video below with all the art - I hope you are inspired to create some thank you cards of your own.

What We Do Best Challenge Week One Technique Junkies
What We Do Best Challenge Week One Technique Junkies
This week, all customer entrants were "put into a hat" and one name was drawn randomly to win the $50.00 gift certificate to the Technique Junkies store! This week, our winner is...
Rachel Duong!
Rachel submitted several entries this week, and like all the others, was a great inspiration. Rachel, watch your email for your gift certificate.

Week Two is upon us, so our theme this week is to make Get Well cards.  Do not feel that each card has to say "Get Well Soon", but keep the cards in the spirit of the theme. Don't forget the envelope!

To get us jump-started, here is the first card of the week, from me:
Groovy Flowers Mask with Grand Greetings
To make my card today, I used Pixie Spray on the Groovy Flowers Mask (A Colorful Life Designs Stencils, available from Technique Junkies) to hold it firmly while blending  Distress Oxide Inks with Blending Brushes. The Get Well Soon Sentiment from the Grand Greetings Set was added over the top, and it was layered to help pop the colors. 

Just as a refresher, here is the challenge again:
Our challenge will run for four weeks, with each of the four weeks featuring a different theme. Each week, you can make one or more cards with envelopes using Technique Junkies stamps within a weekly theme. Simply post them to the Technique Junkies FaceBook group OR email them directly to me.  

Each week, one of the challenge cards will be selected RANDOMLY and will win a $50.00 gift certificate to the Technique Junkies online store!  

That is $50.00 PER WEEK that we will be giving away with this challenge!

Here are the "rules" and the themes:
1. Create a card using Technique Junkies Stamps or Foils. Please, no other companies' stamps on your creations. Dies, stencils and other embellishments are welcomed, but kindly remember that it is a company-sponsored challenge.
2. You must include a decorated envelope with your card entry.
3. Email your card to OR post to the Technique Junkies Facebook Group with the following hashtag: #WWDB. 
4. You may post a different card every day. Cards that have been posted to the Technique Junkies FaceBook group prior to the start of the challenge may not be used in this challenge. Each card posted must be made by the poster and only be posted once during the contest.
5. One submitted entry (card) will be selected randomly at the end of the week, and a $50.00 gift certificate winner will be announced on this email and to the FaceBook group on the following Friday.

Here are the themes:
Week Two: 4/24 - 4/30 Get Well Card:
Must also include a decorated envelope.
Week Three: 5/1 - 5/7: Thinking of you card:
Think shut-ins and other people struggling with the situation. Again, you need to include a decorated envelope.
Week Four 5/8 - 5/14 Encouragement card:
Pretty broad spectrum here - but inspiration, thinking of you, thank you, all encompassed here, too. Again, an envelope is necessary.

I can't wait to see what you make!
I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!
