Don’t miss out on this chance to win your favorite animal stamp set!

Remember standing in the pet store and wanting to adopt some cute little critter so much? When I was a kid we adopted several cats (I think I named at least 2 of them Twinkie) and later a dog (who was a beagle named Snoopy). Those pets worked out reasonably well. But sometimes the desire to adopt an animal isn't quite so logical. I remember one year I went off to camp and fell in love with owls. There were several summers I was sure my life would not be complete if I didn't own a horse. And I'm pretty sure I coveted my best friend's turtle even though it really did stink.
 
For all of us who haven't been able to adopt the critters that our hearts desired, there is some good news today. This week we are having the first ever animal adoption drive right here at Technique Tuesday. And there are so many animals to choose from! Ever want to have your own lion? Check out Leo. Would you like to have a goat but without having to muck out the barn? You are going to want to look for Gertie and Garth the Goats. And who can resist June the Giraffe? Starting today, you can enter for a chance win one of our Animal House stamp sets. Here's how: 
  1. Choose your favorite  animal stamp set from all the critter stamps on our website.
  2. Leave the name of your favorite animal stamps in a comment here between now and June 29th.
 We will announce a winner here on our blog on July 1st. It's that easy to adopt the animal of your dreams!

New Video: Watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Pens

Hi, everyone!

Are you into coloring? Like the look of watercolors? We've got a new video from Julie today, sharing a watercoloring technique with Zig Clean Color pens. Julie recently added these pens to her crafty arsenal and has really been enjoying their bright, cheery colors.

Watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Pens Video | Technique Tuesday

Julie uses the Greenhouse Society Strawberry stamp set and dies for this project, but this technique would work great with any of our flower and nature sets.  We hope you'll be inspired to try it with the Cosmothe Barberry, and even the Delightful Daisy sets. 

Watch the video!

We'd love to hear from you about future videos! Are there some coloring techniques you'd like to learn more about? Please leave a comment for us!

And the Winner is... Plus More Coloring Inspiration

Hi, everyone!

The time has come to pick a winner for the Technique Tuesday stop on the day 2 of the The Daily Marker Coloring 30 Day Coloring Challenge Blog Hop. 

First, we wanted to share a little more coloring inspiration from Design Team member Kymona Tracey.

Smiles Pineapple by Kymona Tracey for Technique TuesdayKymona turned a planner page into a canvas by stamping the pineapple from the Sweet Summertime stamp set onto it. Then she added some color to it with markers. Stamping and coloring in a planner is a great way to try new coloring techniques for cards and scrapbook pages.


Pearfect Pears Coloring by Kymona Tracey Kymona used pencils to add a lot of highlights and shading to these two pears that she stamped with the Funny Fruits stamp set. Look closely at her coloring and you'll see a variety of greens and yellows in her design, which went right onto a card.

In need of more coloring inspiration for the challenge? Don't forget to check out the videos on the Technique Tuesday website. You'll find lots of coloring videos that feature our Greenhouse Society stamp sets and matching dies

So let's get back to that blog hop prize! Who won the $25 gift certificate? Well, that's Jeannean Marshall! Congrats, Jeannean. Check your inbox for an email from Teri about your prize! 

A big thanks goes out to everyone who stopped by during the blog hop and left such kind comments. We hope you'll stop by again! Our countdown to the July release of new stamps and dies begins on June 26th, plus we've got some fun posts planned between now and then.

The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge Blog Hop - Day 2

30 Days Coloring Challenge from The Daily Marker

Hi, friends!

Technique Tuesday is excited to be taking part in the second day of a fun blog hop celebrating The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Have you heard of the challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin? The challenge, which started again on June 1st, is all about coloring. This is the 10th time Kathy has hosted this challenge. 

The premise of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is to color something everyday even if it’s only just for five or 10 minutes. However, if you don't have time to commit to taking part in it everyday, you are still invited to play whenever you have time.

All coloring mediums are welcomed. You can upload your projects  here  or on Instagram or in a private Daily Marker Facebook group. Remember to use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day  and tag @kathyrac when you share your projects! 

Some of the Technique Tuesday Design Team members have been taking part in the challenge this time.

Funny Fruit stamped images by Jill Dewey HawkinsJill Dewey Hawkins used markers to color in these adorable peaches and bananas from the Funny Fruits. The wiggle eyes perfectly finish them off!

Stamped Geese by Kymona Tracey for Technique TuesdayKymona Tracey did some stamping and coloring in her planner! She even tied her coloring of the birds from Duck Swan Goose to National Repeat Day. Fun! 

Jellyfish stamped card by Emily LeiphartEmily Leiphart used watercolors to color in these jellyfish from Sassy Love Your Guts and then put them on card. Don't you love how she added color to the stamped sentiment too?

In need of some coloring inspiration to get going with the challenge (or to get your through it)? We've got some great videos on our website that feature coloring. 

This one by Julie features colored pencils and shows you how to do no-line coloring on vellum. It's one of my favorite videos! Julie's results are stunning!

Be sure to check out all the stops on the hop today! There are some prizes up for grabs, plus there's even more coloring inspiration! 

Technique Tuesday (<---You are here)
Trinity Stamps (<--- Next stop on the hop!)
The Ton    

And Technique Tuesday is giving away a prize too! Let us what you like to use to color with. Markers, colored pencils or watercolors? We'll pick someone at random to score a $25 gift card to our website. Comments will be taken until midnight on June 17th, 2018. The lucky winner will be announced on June 19th here on our blog.  

Happy blog hopping!

New Video: Masking Magic in 3 Easy Steps!

Hey, everyone!

Bev here today with a new stamping tutorial!

This tutorial is a bit unusual! Usually masking tutorials feature a pretty flower or a cuddly bear. Not today… I decided this masking tutorial should feature a bale of hay. Kinda weird, right? Anyway, I hope you will watch the video to see how I transformed that bale of hay into a pile of hay bales across several cards. Plus you’ll also learn how you can use these 3 easy steps with flowers and cuddly animal stamps too!

Interested in learning more fun stamping ideas for your paper craft projects? Stop by our website and check out all the Tips & Techniques videos we've put together.
