TJ Blocked Background

Are you a member of Technique Junkies?
If so you received the latest Newsletter in the mail
this past week with fu  new techniques.

As a designer I have to do certain techniques for
the newsletter, but when it comes I love to try all the
other techniques as well.

This technique is called "Blocked backgrounds"
and I really like doing it. So I made these two cards.

The first card is made with a swan stamp by Art Neko
and a sentiment by Michael Strong.

Here a close up of the colored part of the card.
If you click on the photo you see a larger version.
I colored with distress markers.

The second card is made with Club Scrap papers
and stamps. The sentiment is a sticker that
came with one of the old kits called Ferris Wheel.
The stamp is from the 2009 Henna Kit.

Also here a close up of the colored part.
I added a sticky gemstone in the middle of the flower.
Here I also colored with distress markers. 
Can't wait to get some of the new colors.

If you are not a member of Technique  Junkies, you should
hop over and take a look and try the free tutorials
that are available.
Have a creative day!
