Do you know that Mardi Gras is just 2 weeks away! Altho I've never been, I just luv Mardi Gras....all the hoopla', the fun, the parades, colors, beads and candy, and especially the Hurricane's! I've been to New Orleans several times, and let me tell you that those people don't need an excuse like Mardi Gras to party, it's a really fun place.
And speaking of fun.... we are excited today at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge! Have we got the ultimate challenge for you today! Our hostess this week, Monique, challenged our team to use a technique on their creation. And.... we decided to take it a step further. What better place to turn than Pat Huntoon of the Technique Junkie Newsletter! Stampotique is teaming up with the Technique Junkies team to create a card using the Faux Barnwood Technique. We want you to join us this week and you can use the Faux Barnwood Technique or any of the techniques Pat uses on her website.
Altho we have a little time before the festivities, my BFF has her spot saved on the parade route and she is decked out to the 9's in the Mardi Gras colors, waiting....waiting....waiting for the fun to begin. Isn't she just a hoot! I luv this line of stamps and can't wait to get more! I've colored the image with Spica Pens, gold paint and reinkers...using a watercolor brush. Don't you just luv the faux barnwood background....I've used black and green for my bg, covered with white...when dry, I brushed a little purple on the white. I luv how it cracked!!
Make sure to stay tuned to the website as both the Stampotique design team AND the Technique Junkies design team participated in this challenge and we will be sharing some wonderful creations using the Faux Barnwood technique over the next 2 weeks here.
So, what are you waiting for????? Get out some papers, some inks, some stamps and join us
