Technique Junkie - Another CD7 Sneak Peek!

Here is another sneak peek at one of the Bonus Techniques from the new Technique Junkie CD. This one is called Art Squared. I love how quick and easy it is!

After I made the background I knew I wanted to use some kind of masculine stamps - I was thinking automotive, but what stamps did I have? Hmmmm.....aha! Artistic Outpost's Route 66 collection has just the stamps I needed. I think this will make a fantastic card for a man's birthday.

Here's a little embossing tip you might want to try. There are times when I want the look of metallic embossing, but I don't care for the brightness of it. To tone it down, take a fine grit sandpaper or sanding block and lightly rub it over the embossed image. It takes it from 'in your face' shiny to a slightly more vintage look.

If you haven't checked out the Technique Junkie Treasure Hunt, make sure you read this post!
