Become a Technique Junkie for Life!

Yep, you read that right!  YOU can become a Technique Junkie for LIFE!  I just love the techniques in the TJNL, not just because I get to see them before they go public, but because they've really helped me develop as an artist.  The majority of techniques you see me use on my blog have all come from issues of the Technique Junkies Newsletter.  If you're a stamper, this stamping resourse is a must have!

So, how can you enter to become a Technique Junkie for Life?  Simple.... follow the directions in the newsletter HERE (this is a password protected page for current subscribers only) for using the sketch shown to design your card.   In order to qualify for the drawing, your card must use Technique Junkie techniques on it (from any issue of the newsletter), and you must be a Technique Junkie Member to enter this challenge contest. For more details on this months Technique Junkie by Design Contest, see Pat's post here.

Okay, so I have a lot of unused TJ Technique Backgrounds in my "resourse drawer"!  On my card I used the following Techniques: Panel A Createx Creations, Panel B Aged Metal, Panel C a "morped version of Double Embossed Metal (becasue I ran out of Metal, I used Core'dinations Black Magic Card Stock and omitted the coloring).  Focal Panel uses Paper Tole and Out of the Box Techniques.  Now to find someone with an upcoming Anniversay!

Ink - Black Archival, Black Stazon
Card Stock - Stampin' Up! Black, Taken with Teal, Black Glossy, Core'dinations Black Magic

Gorgeous card Lisa...! I love the colors and all of the beautiful techniques....(have an anniversary in Feb- 23 years)! I will be a TJ for life whether I win or not- I have just been a member since 2004 and like you said- it really stretches me- I have no prior art training, but have such a desire to express myself creatively. So, Thanks for all of your inspiration!

Of course, it's beautiful, Lisa! The color combo is dramatic, and the variety of techniques is great! That rose is perfect there, isn't it?

Yours is lovely - the color scheme is one of my favorites.

Usually when I use this layout, it is to put inchies on an ATC.

Beautiful colors and absolutely love the mixture of textures. I need to give the sketch a try. TFS

It's no wonder you're published so often; your work is out of this world! This card is truly beautiful.
