New Team, New Stamps!

Hello, Hello!

I am back!  And with good news to boot!  I am now a Design Team Member for Technique Junkies.  My crafty break did me so much good and now I am enjoying crafting and playing with new goodies.   I have been having so much fun with Technique Junkies stamps and of course, it is all about Christmas right now.
This clean Christmas card was made with a background stamp~

I used a couple of different techniques to turn this Layered Swirls background image into the main focal point.

I started by stamping the image in Memento Desert Sand on Neenah Solar White paper.  Then, using Copics, I took a stab at no line coloring and colored in lots of the leafy scrolls.  The red berries were added in.
Second, I sponged red ink on the background for a little more color than the Desert Sand.  The sentiment, which is from the Gifts of Christmas set, was stamped in black ink, using my MISTI for perfect placement. 
I used a MFT stitched basics edge die for the curve on the image panel.  The card seemed like it needing something else, so I added texture via a dry embossed background panel.  Gold twine finishes it off!
Stop by next week to see how I use this stamp in a completely different way!
