Technique Junkies Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Technique Junkies DT Treasure Hunt Blog Hop, I'm so glad you stopped by! This month the TJ Designers are sharing creations made using Techniques from the December Newsletter, along with product from the TJ Vendors. If you didn't start at the TJ Blog, when your done collecting your clue here, you'll want to head back and start at the beginning, trust me, it will be easier to figure out your clue word.

I used Cosmo Cricket Papers and the Herringbone Technique from the December issue to create the background for my card. I also decided to incorporate a few other TJ techniques on my card, I used a morphed version of the Sepia Technique on Santa image from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods Plate. Why morphed you ask? After finishing, the technique, I added some additional coloring with Spica Glitter Pens.


I attached the stamped image to the Watch Chipboard piece from the Framed Font Chipboard that I applied the Distressed Glimmers Technique to - colors Ranger Fired Brick Distress Ink, Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. I adhered the Chip Board stamped panel to my card using dimensionals. To give that overall sparkle, I spritzed Pearl Glimmer Mist over the entire card. I created the beautiful bow using the Bow Easy and Sable Swiss Satin Ribbon. Before adhering the bow to the Chipboard piece, I lightly spritzed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist, then used a Heat Gun to dry the ribbon, giving it that antiqued look. I used Eclipse Black as the layer under my Herringbone and Brawny RC 100 in Burgundy from TJ Vendor Paper Temptress as my base card.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods
Ink - Black Archival, Ranger Distress Inks Fired Brick Red, Stampin' Up! Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Chalks, Spica Glitter Pens
