Technique Junkies New Release and a New Challenge with The Rainbow Card Challenge!

 Technique Junkies is Celebrating the new July Release!  
As with every Techique Junkies release, you can save 15% on all
new stamps through July 8th.  And, you can save an additional 
10% on  everything in the store ( except clearance) with code TJ10LeeAnn.  
Let's check out the new release!  

This is my favorite of the release, Sailing Panel.  Using my MISTI, I inked up areas with 
different colors of ink.  I colored in the boat with a Copic marker.  
Next, I used a my Currents stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and various different
Distress Inks in blues alongside the stamped image.
To give the card some dimension, I added a drop shadow using a grey Copic along the right side 
of the Sailing Panel.  Lastly, I added a banner, using the new Smooth Sailing
sentiment stamp.
I am linking Smooth Sailing up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday
Challenge, 'Anything Goes'.  
Next up is the fabulous new background stamp, Ropes.  I decided to go the easy 
route and simply heat emboss it onto navy cardstock.  

Please excuse this photo.  It either was looking like black cs or over-exposed navy blue.
Anywho, as you can see I embossed the background in white.  I then stamped the Vintage
Lighthouse stamp in navy and fussy cut it out.  I made a frame using Spellbinders
A2 Matting Basics A Card Creator Dies and adhered the lighthouse to the inside of the 
frame; then popped up the frame on the card front.  
I finished it off with a the Aged to Perfection sentiment stamped on  a strip of cs.  
I am linking up to Watercooler Wednesday- All About Occasions (Birthday).
As it is the first of the month, it is also time for a new challenge at The 
Rainbow Card Challenge!  Can you guess what the color is this month??

We hope you play along with your monochromatic blue card!  

Now, how about some more Technique Junkies inspiration!
