Technique Of The Week

I took the plunge and subscribed to the digital version of Technique Junkies. I'm glad I did because although some of the techniques in the newsletters are ones I've done before there are some that I never heard of. The Faux Paint Swatch in the April issue is one of them. This is also the technique of the week. Every week a technique from the newsletter is featured and people are encouraged to share their work using that technique. More information can be found HERE
This was such a fun technique to try and I'll be doing it more often. I would have done it sooner but I had to go to the hardware store for the secret component needed to make the background. My breeze ink was too light so I had to go back over where I used it with my Sky Blue Brilliance ink. My yellow dye ink also did not show up so I ended up going over where I used that with Gold Brilliance ink. The bottom band of color is Seafoam chalk ink. I bought Tuesday the cute sailboat stamp for $1. It is by Studio 112. I am pleased at how nicely it stamped. The sentiment is from the Inkadinkado Inspiration Lift stamp set.

This was a quick and fun card to do. Cameron my Cameo did get to cut out the panel I used to make my background and stamp on.

Hope you are enjoying beautiful Spring weather. It is gorgeous so I've been going for long walks instead of spending a lot of time crafting.

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
