Technique Junkies June, 2020 Release and Blog Hop Celebration

It's time for the Technique Junkies June Release and blog hop celebration!  And are these stamps ever fabulous!  If you are a beach/sea lover, you are in for a huge treat this month!   Check out the list below for some sweet inspiration from our fabulous design team.

All of the June stamps are 15% off through June 8th.  And, if you use my code, TJ10Lynda, you will get an extra 10% off the release stamps, and all other purchases.  

I have three cards for today's post.

Card 1:
Floral Sea Horse SD1010
Stir My Soul SDX169
Whitecaps S832
Underwater Borders SS107
Best Things In Life S849

I created the background on Bristol smooth card stock, using distress inks and brush applicators.  I stamped the Whitecaps  over the background, faintly.  I stamped images from the Underwater Borders set and the fern from the Best Things In Life stamp.

I stamped the Floral Sea Horse with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and watercolored it with Gansai Tambi watercolors.  Some sparkling clear crystals, and a strip with the Stir My Soul finish the card.


Card 2:
Beach Answer SD1024
Oceans of Love Set of 9 SS119

I stamped the Beach Answer image onto Bristol white card stock, and colored with Arteza Everblend alcohol markers.  

For the bikini, I created leopard shaped spots by making small spots with the alcohol marker, then used a black Micron pen to draw the black around the spots.

I repeated the spots on the layering strip, and on the inside of the card.

Card 3:
Oceans of Love Set of 9   SS119

Currents stencil

I created the background with the A Colorful Life Currents stencil (available at TJ) and distress inks.

I stamped the mermaid/narwhal image from the Oceans of Love Set with VersaFine Clair nocturne ink, and used Arteza Real Brush Markers to color the image.  I love the vibrant, clean colors of these markers, and the long, fine brush tips.

I used the stencil inside, and stamped the birthday verse from the Oceans of Love Set.

You can see all the new June stamps on the TJ site HERE.
