Technique by Design Blog Hop

Hello Friends... and welcome to my stop on the Technique by Design Blog Hop!! I'm so thrilled Pat Huntoon started publishing the Technique by Design feature into the newsletter. I'm finding many fun and creative ideas for all the many fabulous techniques published over the years! I hope to inspire you along with all the other TJ designers.

For my card I incorporated technique pieces that had orange and yellow tones. I wanted warm and sunny to show off the main daffodil image.
Panel A is the Sanded Core'dinations- current issue.
Panels B and D are both Painted Pigments technique (Aug. 08 issue) however panel D I ran through the cuttlebug and highlighted the embossing with stickles glitter glue. I liked the touch of pink mixed with the orange and yellow inks:)
Panel C and E are Spritzed Copic Stone (Dec. 09 issue) using Y11, Y38 and YR15 copic sketch markers. My main image is colored with copics.

Don't miss the opportunity to participate in the challenge/contest! Pat will have awesome products from vendors that YOU could win!!
What you need to do:
1. Follow the sketch from the April/May 2010 Technique Junkies Newsletter...Technique by Design sketch is a great way to incorporate technique backgrounds into your cards.

If you make extra backgrounds when trying out the techniques, you will love being able to use them for the sketch. Note: in order to qualify for the drawing, at least two different TJ techniques must be used on the card.
2. Post a link to Pat's Blog
