Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 91

This time at Crafty Cardmakers, our host is Sharon, and she wants us to 'Use Three Techniques'. The techniques must come from the following list:

Embossing, distressing, masking, make your own flowers, paper piecing and shrink plastic.

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

See the challenge blog for prize details.

I used an image from our sponsor (Milk Coffee) and made another Christmas cards.

The three techniques I used are: masking, embossing and I made the flowers.

For the background, I used a mask. I embossed some white card using it, and, with the card still attached to the mask, I dabbed the card with a Versamark ink pad. I then removed the mask and applied some Perfect Pearls in blue, pink and gold.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, adding a bit of Sakura Stardust pen to the wings, and cut it with an oval nestie. While it was still in the die, I applied some distress ink to the edge of the image. I added some using an Ink Duster, and then added some more to the very edge using a sponge. I matted using another Spellbinders die.

The flowers were cut using a Crealies die. I embossed the edge of the petals using some pastel-toned embossing powder and cut each petal in half before shaping the various layers. I finished the flowers with some turquoise Stickles.

I hope you can join us this time.
