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!
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.
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!!!
