Has it really been that long?

Time flies when you have having fun they say - how about when you are just plain busy?? I can't believe where the weeks are going. I am so sorry to have neglected you my avid readers, hopefully you can forgive me for not sharing some inspiration.

Here is a card I made a while ago that I want to share with you -



It doesn't look overly technical, but it did take a bit of time surprisingly.  I am loving that embossing folder the textured - isn't it gorgeous? This was done using the masking technique. I stamped the image of the flowers in stazon, then on a spare bit of paper I stamped it again and cut it out. I then used the cut out to mask the flower on the card and sponged all around the flowers. Without the mask I would have Baja Breeze all in my flowers which is not the effect I was after. 

I then used the markers and the brilliant watercolour crayons to finish the flowers.

Please ask if you have any questions about the card in the comment sections below.

Thanks!

Kylie
