Technique Junkies Birthday Celebration

 I am celebrating with the Technique Junkies DT today- this month is the 10th Anniversary of the Technique Junkies!  TJ owner Pat Huntoon has been giving out freebies EVERY DAY this month on her BLOG
  Happy Halloween! I used a recent technique called Pulled Color (Aug/Sept 2012) for my card , using Dried Marigold, Dusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade Ranger Distress colors, and it has a bit of shimmer in it too.  The stamps are Artistic Outpost Vintage Halloween. The witch is colored with Copics- can you see the black cat in her arms and the spooky pumpkins? I added some shimmer to her dress with a Sakure Gelly Roll pen. The fence is a Digital image from Create with TLC.

 In addition to a newsletter every other month (which you can receive in your mailbox or on-line- or both....) there are a variety of CD's made with loads of techniques from Scrapbooking to 3-D projects, a CD using SU items.There is a drop down link on my sidebar if you want to order one : ).

  The next big Technique Junkie giveaway is a chance to Guest Design for a future newsletter!!!  You just need to Hop along and leave a comment at each blog on the hop.  If you did not arrived here from Hetty's Blog, you may choose to hop over to the Technique Junkies DT blog to start at the beginning of the Hop......

The next stop on the HOP is Jackie's Blog.  I have been a member of the Technique Junkies for 8 years now- I enjoy it so much- a HUGE Thanks to Pat for all she has done to provide a variety of stamping techniques to keep papercrafters challenged and inspired!


I am linking my card to the Artistic Outpost Blog- for the October Referral Program HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my this is cute. I love technique junkies because of all the paper you can make yourself. The cool thing is you can make it to match your project. Who needs designer paper?
