October Release Blog Hop!

It is that time again -- another release for Technique Junkie Stamps.  I find these releases so exciting.  I love seeing and using new stamps!  You should have arrived here from Jerri Jones's blog -- If not then please start at the Design Team Blog 

I have two cards for you using three new stamps or stamp sets!    Both cards feature the new hawk stamp

For this first card I stamped and water colored the hawk sitting on the branch with Peerless Watercolors.  Then I masked out the sky and focal image to create the moon.   I sponged in the moon to color it, and then covered it with a mask.  I created a mask for the hawk, and stamped  Blustery Day over all with black ink.  Then I sponged in color for the night sky.   I used a saying from the new word set called Mae West Sentiments 2 stamped on vellum and then adhered with adhesive from my Xyron machine.
My second card also features the hawk and the new Wood stamp  I also used a stamp called Living on the Edge for the greeting on the front.  I stamps and water colored the hawk with Peerless Watercolors. Then I used the same hawk mask from above and masked out the hawk.  I spritzed a small amount of the Art Anthology sprays for the sky.  I stamped the wood grain stamp on light brown card stock, sponged over it all, and then I also spritzed this piece and the saying piece with the Art Anthology sprays carrying over the same type of look.

I want to send you on the way to the next blog to hop so that you can see the exciting work being done.

Judy, your hawks are beautiful. You really outdid yourself with the backgrounds and the regal looking hawk.
