Technic challenge

Good afternoon every one. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you saved up some energy for the week to come. I'm really feeling tired and well not bad, but not good either. Low might be the word I'm looking for here. Oh well, life goes on and hopefully I catch up with it soon. It would be nice to be if not on the same page, at least in the same book. ;)

As there seems to be a little baby boom going on in the family, I had made another baby card using one of the wonderful images from Bildmålarna, Sweden. That is if you can call two babies for a baby boom? The paper pad used is from First Edition; the Sweet Owl pad. Lovely pink and browns in this pad. I don't like the glittered or embossed papers that much as it always seems to be too much of it, but in small pieces I can use them too. Or give them to the kids... isn't that using too? LoL

The image is coloured with distress inks this time and the splatter in the corners is made with a stamp from Stempelglede. Love that set, it's so useful. The technics I have use for my card is embossing (both wet and dry). The middle panel is dry embossed with a heart embossing board, the big butterfly is wet embossed in white. All edges is distressed with walnut stain from T.H. I have used the shrink plastic to make a few heart embellishments and tied them to the scrappers floss I added to the card. Also tied a bow around there as it looked a bit empty. I did also die cut some flowers and added to the mix. The dies used are from Magnolia, and so is the big butterfly. The smaller ones are made with a M.S. punch. A few pearls added to the mix and I was done. I so regret adding the scrapping floss, but as it was stuck, it had to stay. LoL

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Card Makers and this period we are having a technic challenge for you all. You have to pick three of the technics from a list choosen by Sharon. Take a look down here for what technics you have to pick from. Or even better check out the Crafty Card Makers challenge blog. For me it was lots of fun to bring out the shrink plastic again after all those years actually. LoL But it was a lot harder to colour on than I remembered. LoL

This is the list and don't forget to tell what technics you have used. It's not easy to see all the lovely details of your creation in the photos from time to time.
