Technique Treats June

Things going a bit slow today here on the “Sunny Coast” of Australia. We have had wild winds, endless heavy rain and hit and miss communications.

Despite the weather though it is a Happy Day.

We have a lucky WINNER!!! for our special comments on this months Catalogue launch. I am pleased to say, husband Bevan pulled the name out of the hat, and our lucky winner is Gail!! Well done Gail, just shows a comment or two on blogs can have beneficial effects. I will arrange for you to receive you FREE TUTORIAL!!  Thanks to all those who visited and commented.  It was a record number of visits, hope you all come back again and better luck next time.

I haven’t made many Split Negative cards so found this Tutorial a good way to refresh my June TTown memory on what an effective way it is to showcase a stamp or effect. Traditionally done in black and white I wanted to extend things a bit and made a female card using Basic Black and Melon Mambo Inks. You can choose your favorite  colours when making from the tutorial.

All 4 cards are made featuring the Traveler Stamp Set.

Cards using Spotlighting in my past have been mostly nature based and centered on birds or flowers so again using the Traveler Set was a move away from the norm. Vicky has extended it even further with additional techniques we  have covered in past tutorials.

This is what tutorials challenge you to do and Gail said it well in her comment.

“I would love to win a Free Technique Treat, it might help me get out of my comfort zone & help me to do something different”

This is what we bring to you each month, a chance to do something different.


If this is your first visit you can still purchase the previous months by clicking on their Buy button.

Happy Stamping Naomi!
