Last stop on the TJ Blog Hop!

Welcome! Today is May 1st and that means New Stamps! Today the Technique Junkies Design Team is celebrating the release with a team blog hop to showcase the new stamps and provide some inspiration. This is the last stop on the hop; if you came here from Chris Dayton's blog, you are in the right place. If not, start at the TJ Design Team Blog, where Design Team Manager Jeanne Streiff kicks off the hop with a few beautiful pieces of art.  We have three great new designers joining us this month -- along with our wonderful existing crew of designers -- the artwork is  fresh and fabulous!

Remember that all the May 2017 Release stamps are 15% off through May 8th. Simply place any of the May stamps in your basket and the 15% discount will be deducted at checkout.

Here are a couple of pieces from me to help close out the hop:
 This first pieces uses the Last Breath stamp. I simply colored it using markers, then layered it over a piece of red cardstock that had been decorated using the Art Anthology Twilight Stencil with Silver  Gem Glimmer Paste to make the stars. 

The second piece uses Watercolor Birds. To create this, I spray Art Anthology Colorations in Patience, Plush and Ink Spot to make a colorful background. Then I  just used markers to color in the stamped areas. It is darker than it would be if I had not sprayed the background, but really pretty in person. The sentiment is from the Better at the Lake set (precious release).

I have more to show you later this month, but now it's time to shop! If you missed it, here are the links once again for the entire hop:

Fabulous release, Pat!!!! Each month I'm more and more impressed by the team you've assembled and the stamps you showcase. I love the flag stamp and the stenciled background shows it off perfectly. The birds are stunning and I know I have to have that sentiment set!

Beth Norman said...

Wow, I would have never thought to spray over a card like you did and I really love it. Terrific cards, Pat. I really loved this release too.
