August Blog Hop for Technique Junkie Stamps!

Today is August 1 -- the first of the month. And in the Technique Junkie world that means a Blog Hop! So today I am featuring four NEW stamps from Technique Junkie Stamps. If you are starting here at my blog, please go to http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com for the entire Blog Hop. 
 
You should have arrived here from Gini Cagle's blog -- http://ginicagle.blogspot.com
 
My first card features the new Zebra stamp appropriately called -- "Zebra ATC" - http://techniquejunkies.com/zebra-atc/    - SD622 and the words come from a set called "Zebra Sayings" - SS047 - http://techniquejunkies.com/zebra-quotes/
I created the background for the image with spray Distress Inks.  After it had dried I stamped the image with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed the image.  Then with the scraps, I did the same with the saying.  I spritzed the background paper with a quick couple of bursts with spray Distress inks as well.
 
For the next card I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used watercolor pencils for the skin and the hair. I used Copic markers for the eyes, eye shadow, and the sky.
 
 
 
 
The stamps I used are "Let's Face It" - P029 http://techniquejunkies.com/lets-face-it-4/ - and "Always Hope" - SD651 - http://techniquejunkies.com/always-hope/.
 
As is her custom, Pat Huntoon is offering on all of the August Releases for Technique Junkie stamps from August 1 (today!) until August 8 (the last day of the sale).  You can find all of the August Releases here - http://techniquejunkies.com/august-2015-releases/.

Wow! I thought the zebra card was my favorite... then I saw your face card. Wish I could get a face to look that real. Great work!
