Technique Junkies November Treasure Hunt

Welcome to the next step along the TJ Treasure Hunt! Friends and blog readers may be exhausted from all the Black Friday treasure hunts this past weekend but I hope you have found this treasure hunt to be fun and relaxing! If you just arrived here you will want to begin at the Technique Junkies Blog so that you can collect all the clues! At the end of the treasure hunt your CLUES will spell a word... leave Pat Huntoon a comment with the correct word for a chance to win a fabulous prize!

First up, I'd like to share this fairy card featuring 'Color Outside the Lines' technique from the Dec. 09 issue of Technique Junkies Newsletter. I'm finding this technique to be especially helpful when I have large detailed images and I do not want to color the whole thing but want to work with a portion of the image or when I have a smaller image that I want to appear larger yet still highlight the beauty of the image itself.

Next I'd like to share this winter scene by Stampin' UP using the same Color Outside the Lines technique. With this scene I stamped the image with Rich Cocoa by Memento (rather than the usual black) and used frosty blue tones (BG000 and BG01 copic markers) for coloring. A tiny touch of yellow in the church window becomes very inviting in this chilly winter scene.

Your treasue hunt clue is the letter N.
This technique is great to use with a variety of coloring mediums... give it a try!!
The next stop is at  Lisa Somerville's website! Good Luck everyone!

Your cards are pretty, but the bottom one is stunning! I love the colour you chose to use on the outside edges. Against the white the impact is "wow"!

Gorgeous- I like the idea of the detailed image and not have to do such detailed stamping. TFS
