Now on to my projects for this hop.  The Technique Junkie August release stamp on this card is Strong Women - www.techniquejunkies.com/strong-women/.  The verse is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The three women's faces were stamped with Memento ink and colored in with my Copic markers. The women's faces are from the TJ set called Beautiful Faces - 
http://techniquejunkies.com/beautiful-faces/ .  I also used the Paper Piecing technique for the headdresses of the women and placed the headdress on each woman as I stamped the image. .  I stamped the same face three times on "post it notes" that have sticky stuff all over the back of the paper.  I stamped the middle face first, covered it with the "mask," and then stamped the lower face image.  I covered it with a mask and stamped the third woman.   Then I covered it with a mask.  After all of the women's faces were covered with a mask, I then used Art Anthology Colorations spray to color the background - http://techniquejunkies.com/products-and-accessories/art-anthology-products/.  I added some die cut leaves in three corners. 

I created this card with some layering of die cuts and die cuts of grass.  I used Technique Junkies August release of  Savannah Giraffes - www.techniquejunkies.com/savannah-giraffes-set-of-2/ ;  and an older TJ  stamp called Mama and Baby - http://techniquejunkies.com/mama-and-baby/  .    I stamped and heat embossed the giraffes and tree, and created the sky with sponging.  I fussy cut the baby elephant and adhered it to the top frame.  I used the verse Kindness Matters - http://techniquejunkies.com/kindness-matters/    - on the grass. The two top layers are popped up with foam tape.

Ostriches are funny creatures.  They are classified as birds because they have feathers but cannot fly.  Their bodies just not have an aerodynamic shape for flying.  Both stamps used here from the Technique Junkies August Release - Your Kind of Crazy -www.techniquejunkies.com/your-kind-of-crazy/  ; and Planks - www.techniquejunkies.com/your-kind-of-crazy/  .   I used Copic markers to color the ostriches.  The planks were heat embossed and then painted with Twinkling H2Os.

My last card uses the Technique Junkies stamp Rainforest - www.techniquejunkies.com/rainforest/.
I used Chameleon Colortone pencils (http://techniquejunkies.com/chameleon-colortone-pencils/ )
to color in the rainforest leaves and such.  I stamped the image twice and colored and fussy cut some of the leaves and popped them up using some foam tape. I also die cut some flowers and additional leaves.  I sponged color on both the flowers and the leaves to add additional dimension to both.

So there are my offerings for the Technique Junkies August Blog Hop and I hope I have given you eye candy you have liked.
