SDC25-Getting Technical with Technique Junkies

We are so excited today at Stampotique Designer's Challenge! Have we got the ultimate challenge for you today!

Our hostess this week, Monique challenged our team to use a technique on their creation. We decided to take it a step further and what better place to turn than Pat Huntoon of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. Stampotique is teaming up with the Technique Junkies team to create using the Faux Barnwood Technique. We want you to join us this week and you can use the Faux Barnwood Technique or any of the techniques Pat uses on her website. Please make sure to link within your post which technique you are using.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that I'm really not much of a "techniquey" That being said, I set off to try to give this technique a go and I have to say it was fun!

I created the Faux Barnboard as instructed by the TJ instructions that I received. I decided to zip up the background a wee bit by stamping Jo's Small Butterfly in Plum ink. I then coloured up Arty with Copic Markers and Cut her out. I used the sentiment part of the Grow Girl Image.
I actually enjoyed making this card from start to finish and who knows, with doing two technique type cards in a month, you may start seeing more!!!!

What are you playing for this week? Oh.....good question! How about we give away 2 prizes this week along with 2 winners??? Pat Huntoon has been very gracious and is giving away one of the Fancy Folds and Motions CDs PLUS a two year, online only subscription (2010 and 2011 issues) for one winner and the other winner will be receiving a $30 gift certificate towards stamps to the Stampotique store. We will randomly draw 2 winners for the prizes before our next challenge on March 9th.

Make sure to stay tuned to the website as both the Stampotique design team AND the Technique Junkies design team participated in this challenge and we will be sharing some wonderful creations using the Faux Barnwood technique over the next 2 weeks here.

So, what are you waiting for????? Get out some papers, some inks, some stamps and join us!
