Blog Candy - TJNL CD #5

I'm joining Pat today in the TJNL's Anniversary Celebration - after all it's my 16th Anniversary on Friday - so I thought I'd give my blog readers a gift!

I love being a Design Team member for the newsletter, it's really helped me with my creativity - not to mention getting to play with all the awesome techniques.

So, what can you win? I'm giving away the 5th Edition CD from the Technique Junkies Newsletter.

Here's a card I created for my Husband for our Anniversary. This card uses stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms and the Color Wash Smoosh Technique from the 5th Edition CD, .

Color Wash Smoosh is a technique I wrote and filmed for the CD - it's a very easy technique that yields different results each time. I morphed the technique for this particular card - after doing the technique, I went back and colored my images with markers to add more depth and dimension.

To be entered to win the Technique Junkies 5th Edition CD, leave a comment on this post by Sunday, October 7. I'll have the random number generator pick a winner and post the lucky winners name on Monday. Be sure to leave your email address when posting your comment, so that you can be contacted when you win! Good Luck!

Card Details:
Ink - Black Archival
Card Stock - Black, Rose Red, Ballet Blue, Glossy
Other - Misc. Markers, Color Wash Sprays (Fire Opal, Malachite, Amethyst), acetate

I am finding all of these great blogs that I didn't even know existed. There is so much to learn and so little time. Should I approach DH about not working so I can spend more time on my stamping? The job really cuts into my stamping and social time.
