Love The Simple Things

Good morning! I hope you had a good weekend. A few of my girlfriends and myself went to a stamp show in Westminster MD. I love going to these events and learning about new companies and their products. One of the companies I came across was Technique Junkies and oh my was I so excited!! Their stamps are amazing and priced so well. 

We have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper this week.  The inspiration is Watercolor 

I was excited to use one of the background stamps I purchased from the Technique Junkies booth at the stamp show! Here is the card I created 

I started my card with a Basic Black card base and then added layers of Only Orange and Basic Black. For the main layer I used a piece of Canson Watercolor cardstock and stamped the Technique Junkies Poppies background Stamp in Stazon black ink. I watercolored the whole background using Tim Holtz Scattered Straw and then highlighted the flowers with Ripe Persimmon and Abandoned Coral. After that dried I applied distress Stickles to the flower centers. While that was drying I stamped the sentiment from the Unity set Head Up-Heart Strong on a piece of white cardstock and then backed that on a piece of black cardstock and added to my card using dimensionals. 

Needless to say I am now addicted to Technique Junkies stamps!! If you haven’t ever seen them go check it out here

Thank you for stopping by today!

Until next time 

Happy Crafting 🙂
