Technique Junkie Day

Today I played with a couple of the new techniques from the Dec. 2010/Jan.2011 newsletter they both are both very fun techniques and this would be the perfect time to subscribe to Pat's newsletter it is chocked full of wonderful techniques and is printed 6 times a year.
Now this first card uses the Texture Plate Smoosh which is the background piece, I used the sketch is this weeks SCS sketch the image is a digi called "Touched By Love" and is a image I won at Sundays With Crissy for being one of the first 12 to sign up for her challenge this week Crissy is also the artist who made this image.

The second technique I used is called Glossy Gesso which I used on the background paper again the stamp used on the BG  and verse is from SU and the poinsettia stamp is Outline Stamps I stamped my image 4 times with Tim Holtz embossing ink used gold embossing powder cut out each layer used dimensional dots to pop up the last 2 layers.

Stamps- SU and Outline
Inks-Brocade blue, sky blue, turquoise, Tim Holtz embossing ink.
