Hello Junkies, 

I'm here with a quick post...I wanted to show you a really easy and fun technique that I discovered while playing with my Technique Junkies stamps today.  I'm not claiming this is my technique....I'm sure someone some where has done this....It just came to me while playing with my inks today.

This is the same technique for both cards, just using different colored inks....who doesn't want to find new ways to use all those colored inks we have in our stash???  

Check it out.  The stamps I used for both cards was #SD611 "To The Moon" and #S656 "Celestial Dangles". 

The technique I used for this might be called soft and swipe.  I first inked the bg stamp with a light color dye ink then before stamping it on a white card base, I swiped a darker  shade of the same color family on the lighter ink, then stamped it.  I used my MISTI, so once I'd stamped the first time, I then took the lighter ink and (didn't clean the stamp) inked it up again and stamped over the image.  It popped the color amazingly.  For an additional touch, I took my Delicata Silver Shimmery pigment ink and swiped it down (vertically) across the entire panel.  I don't think the photo shows the incredible look of this, but it's quite gorgeous in real life.  For a final touch I added some sequins for sparkle and shine.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Head to the TJ Pinterest page and load up with inspiration.  

Merry Christmas and Happy Crafty New Year!

Beautiful, Cheri. Your technique really shows up well in the pink. The stamps seem so fitting for this technique. I don't think I've come across it before so I think you are just the gal who came up with this idea.
