Technique Junkies February Release Blog Hop

No automatic alt text available.
Hello friends!!! Welcome to another super Technique Junkies Release! This month we have 14 new sets and the Design Team is going to show a variety of products using all of them!! 
If you have arrived here from the Technique Junkies Blog, you are in the right place, if not, please start from HERE to start at the beginning of the hop

I have projects using 3 different sets for you today.
So let's get started.

Soul of a Gypsy:  This card is super simple. I stamped the saying on a piece of watercolor paper in Stazon Midnight  Blue Ink, then I colored the background using Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers. I created different backgrounds in different colors. I die-cut the saying and a white and another piece of watercolor background with stitched dies. Adhered the big background direct to the card front base and the other 2 layers with foam tape to create dimension. I filled the heart with Ruby Liquid Pearls.


Rose Love: This card uses the  "Faith, Love, Hope" set (of 7). This set has beautiful images and sentiments that you can use them together or not. In this card I used only the Rose and Love sentiment. I stamped the roses on opposite corners in Stazon Ganache Ink on watercolor paper, then colored them with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers, then added a light blue shadow for the background. The panel was die-cut with Stitched Dies. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Versamark Watermark ink and added gold embossing powder and heat set. Create a card base piece from Pink Cardstock, stamped the roses in Versamark Watermark ink and set aside to dry. Adhered panel to card with foam adhesive. Add pearls. As a final touch I covered the roses with Crystal Lacquer. Set aside to dry.


Something Different For this card I stamped the image in Stazon Ganache Ink on a piece of watercolor paper. I, again, used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to color the image. Then die-cut a couple of scallop square pieces that were adhered direct on the front of card and a border from pink cardstock was added behind the image, then added foam adhesive and adhered to card base. Added few pearls to embellish the panel.
