Three Different Techniques

Hi All,

Monday has come around again and it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.

Sharon is our hostess this fortnight and her challenge is to use three of the following techniques on your card or project ...
Embossing (wet or dry)
Making your own flowers
Paper piecing/patchwork
Shrink Plastic

I used embossing, make your own flowers and shrink plastic
Tim Holtz dressform diecut from textured kraft card
Flowers made using a Martha Stewart punch and cardstock inked with various DI's, with a touch of stickles and bling.
Leaf is a Stampin Up diecut
French script stamp is Stampin Up, embossed with gold
Stamped 'Love' onto shrink plastic with Stazon then shrunk with my heatgun
Mounted onto DP and gold miri

Our sponsors for this challenge are

Milk Coffee Digital Stamps with a prize of 5 digis

Sir Stampalot who have donated a Stampendous Fran-tage Mica Frantage Kit

I'd also like to enter my card into the following Challenges ...
Artful Times - #29 - Blooming Marvellous
Let's Craft and Create - #69 - One for the Girls

Okay that's me for today, sorry haven't been around much lately, life seems to have taken over again - trips to the garage with squeaky brakes, the optician to replace my son's lost glasses and shopping for new footwear for him as his feet seem to have grown overnight from a size 8 to a 9 1/2! ... blah, blah, blah ... never a dull moment in the life of a housewife! Lol!

Thanks for popping in, hope you're all well.

Take care
Suze xx

Suze this is really lovely! You have used some fab techniques too. Not sure which ones I would choose! Sorry I've only just started catching up with you (amongst others) again. I promise to try harder!
Have a good week.

Suze, I love this card. The way your have draped the flowers across the mannequin is very effective,and excellent use of three of Sharon's technique choices!

I am sorry I haven't been around your blog in ages, but I have had a lot going on at home. I will try to be back regularly from now on as I really appreciate everything you do for the team.
