The Stampotique Designers Challenge this time is being sponsored by The Technique Junkies... here is all the blurb for you to read before you dash off to see the amazing artywork from the DT...
We are so excited today at Stampotique Designer's Challenge! Have we got the ultimate challenge for you
Our hostess this week, Monique challenged our team to use a technique on their creation. And, we decided to take it a step further and what better place to turn than Pat Huntoon of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. Stampotique is teaming up with the Technique Junkies team to create using the Faux Barnwood Technique. We want you to join us this week and you can use the Faux Barnwood Technique or any of the techniques Pat uses on her website. Please make sure to link within your post which technique you are using. If you are a Technique Junkies subscriber and using a technique out of the newsletter, please highlight the name and issue you are creating from.
What are you playing for this week? Oh.....good question! How about we give away 2 prizes this week along with 2 winners??? Pat Huntoon has been very gracious and is giving away one of the Fancy Folds and Motions CDs PLUS a two year, online only subscription (2010 and 2011 issues) for one winner and the other winner will be receiving a $30 gift certificate towards stamps to the Stampotique store. We will randomly draw 2 winners for the prizes before our next challenge on March 9th.
Make sure to stay tuned to the website as both the Stampotique design team AND the Technique Junkies design team participated in this challenge and we will be sharing some wonderful creations using the Faux Barnwood technique over the next 2 weeks here.
So, what are you waiting for????? Get out some papers, some inks, some stamps and join us!

5. HAVE FUN CREATING!!
I have altered a little 5" square hardcover book for my entry... I started by painting the whole base with black paint and then once this had dried I stamped Daniels Hearts in Gold Krylon... then I applied the technique and whilst this was drying Wilbur and Marci met up and decided to stick around on the front of the book (oooh, yes, mentalness is starting to show thru again)
The Hanging Hearts and the Hearts Border were stamped with black StaZon and then coloured using Distress Inks and a waterbrush. I added an Ornate Frame and the word Whatever... because the book is actually my "whatever book" for my hangbag... so I can jot down "whatever" whenever I feel like it :O) Thanks for looking... do hop on over to see the Design Team and their GORGEOUS pieces... I tell you, they are well worth the hop over .... TTFN
