Hello Junkies!!! 

Well, one year ends and another will soon begin.  I hope you all had a blessed and healthy 2016 and I wish you all that much and more in 2017.  

I fell in love with this stamp "Bring Your Own Sunshine" when I first saw it in the TJ March 2016 release.  I loved the simplicity of it and thought it could take on many background ideas.  

I dragged out my POSCA Markers and had some fun.  My inspiration came from this image I found on Wayfair.  I've seen a technique called crayon melting to achieve this look on canvas, but I thought I'd try it with the markers and while the look is different, I liked the results.  Plus, it was fun playing with the markers!  

Here are two cards I made using this inspiration and my Posca markers.  

I used some Distress Inks to sponge the bg for the stamp after stamping it with VersaFine black and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder.  I splattered the bg with water drops then blotted them up with a paper towel to get the watery marks.  The bg is simply scribbling in various colors with the markers.  I really do love those pens.  They're acrylic paint in a pen and they're so much fun to play with.

Same idea for this card, except I colored the boots with some Copic markers to make them pop. As you can see, I used the pens to emulate the inspiration piece itself.  

On Monday, January 1, Technique Junkies will be releasing NEW stamps for January 2017.  There will be a blog hop starting at the Technique Junkies Blog and a big discount on the new stamps. You don't want to miss it.   

Have a crafty day and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
