ATCs for Juliet

Here are some ATCs I did from the current TJ Newsletter. I also found some that I did last year around this time.

This set is done with the Pencil Resist technique. I used prismacolor pencils with odorless turpenoid. The background is done with distress ink pads.

These are the ones I found in my stash. These are done with the Acetate Sparkle technique from the 2005 newsletter. You can really see the sparkle irl...

Christmas Cards

Plugging away at my christmas are some I did so far. This one is a magnolia stamp colored with copics. The background is from the Technique Junkies newsletter oldie but goodie from October 2002 called Acetate and Tissue. This is great because 1 sheet makes enough backgrounds for 2 cards. The snowflake stamps and rubons are from Stampin Up!

This one is a Try that Technique Top Latch card, it's a bonus technique from June 08. I used magnolia stamps, stampin up markers and stamps, spellbinders lined with stickles and Distress Ink purple for the edges.

Pointillism - Tilda

I am starting to do my christmas cards. I have about 60 to do for Christmas so hopefully I will get some great techniques used and have a bunch of fun doing them instead of it feeling like a chore a month before they need to go out.

That being said I tried the Pointillism technique that Diana Enns and Beth Norman of the Technique Junkies newsletter put out there this week. It looked different and as easy!

This is a Tilda that I colored for my copics coloring class for our folds technique. I sparkled her and the background up with some stickles. All of the recent techniques I have posted also included the tried and true out of the box. I just love this technique because you can cut down your images to really show off the background...

Once again, thanks for looking and all your wonderful comments!


Background Whimsey Copic Method - Thinking of You Tilda

Here is a thinking of you card I made using Magnolia stamps, colored with copics. I used the background whimsey copic method from the June 10 TJ Newsletter. I used flower soft for the greass beneath the watering can. I used stickles for her halo and the butterfly.
