Technique Junkies - 'Just One' October

I haven't had much of a chance to use some of my 'artier' stamps, but I decided to join in the Technique Junkies 'Just One' swap for October. You submit your name and are partnered up with another TJ member, so you are only required to send one card to each other using at least one technique from any of the Technique Junkie newsletters.

The 1st card pictured is my card, I chose to use the Patina technique from the current Oct 2008 Newsletter. I'm quite pleased with how this technique turned out and it was not too difficult to do. The Mona Lisa stamp is by Stylish Images Australia, I'm afraid I don't know the makers of the quote and the key stamps, they are from a clear set of stamps I purchased on Ebay. I stamped all the images using Brilliance Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

The 2nd card is from my partner Rose A. who lives in New Mexico, USA. Rose chose to use two different TJ techniques for her card. The wishing well image is from 'I Brake For Stamps' and is coloured using the Marker Water Color technique from the June 2008 newsletter, and the background is made using the Createx Creations technique from the April 2008 newsletter. Unfortunately my photo doesn't show how nice and shimmery Rose's card is in real life.

Thanks again Rose for being my 'Just One' partner and for your lovely card!
