have joint together for a challenge
The Stampotique hostess this week, Monique has challenged the team to use a technique on their creation. So Stampotique turned to Pat Huntoon of the Technique Junkie Newsletter and together they decided that the team of the Technique Junkies joint in and they chose to use the Faux Barnwood Technique of the latest Newsletter. Now even if you are not a member of the Technique Junkies you can use this link to the Faux Barnwood technique or or any of the techniques Pat uses on her website to make a card for the Stampotique Febuary Challenge.
Please make sure to link within your post which technique you are using.
What are you playing for this week? Oh…..good question! How about we give away 2 prizes this week along with 2 winners??? Pat Huntoon has been very gracious and is giving away one of the Fancy Folds and Motions CDs PLUS a two year, online only subscription (2010 and 2011 issues) for one winner and the other winner will be receiving a $30 gift certificate towards stamps to the Stampotique store. We will randomly draw 2 winners for the prizes before our next challenge on March 9th.
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!

For my contribution as a member of the Technique Junkie Designteam I choose to use Relaxin' (one of the stamps by Daniel Torrente &Jill Penney). I did some paper piecing technique on this stamp as you can see. This is a technique from the Feb 2003 Newsletter.
I used the Faux Barndoor technique, yes on the barndoor! The grass is stitched on with some embroidery floss. Hope you are inspired to give it a try too!
