Stampotique and Technique Junkies Challenge

Stampotique and Technique Junkies have teamed up for and awesome challenge! The current Stampotique Designer's Challenge is to use a technique on a creation, and where better to find techniques than the Technique Junkie NewsletterStampotique is teaming up with the Technique Junkies design team to create using the Faux Barnwood Technique.  Creations from both the Stampotique design team and the Technique Junkies design team will be shared on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog over the next two weeks so be sure to stay tuned to their blog.
My card will post over there on Saturday, but since you were nice enough to come visit my studio, I won't make you wait until then.  I love sunflowers so I just couldn't resist this Stampotique image called Sunfleur.  I colored her with Copic markers and used a computer generated sentiment.  For my Faux Barnwood Technique, I used bright cobalt blue paint underneath.  I just love the way it came out and I think the color looks so nice with my yellow sunflower. 
And of course, you can join in the fun too!  Complete details can be found on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog, but basically, this is how it works:

1. You must use only Stampotique stamps.
2. You must LINK to the Faux Barnwood Technique or a technique from Technique Junkies that you chose to use within your blog post.
3. Add a link to your challenge post, not to your general blog, using the Inlinkz tool on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog.
4. Contest will close at March 8th at 5 p.m. EST

Now here's the best part--there are two prizes for two winners! Pat Huntoon has been very gracious and is giving away one of the Technique Junkies Fancy Folds and Motion CDs PLUS a two year, online only subscription (2010 and 2011 issues) for one winner.  The other winner will be receiving a $30 gift certificate towards stamps to the Stampotique store. The folks at Stampotique will randomly draw the two winners for the prizes before their next challenge on March 9th.

Thanks for stopping by today!
