Ladies Day

'Use 3 Different Techniques', is  the new Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers set by Sharon.
She gave us a list to choose from wet/dry embossing, distressing.  masking, make your own flowers, paper piecing and shrink plastic.
Please pop over and see what we have all been making this time and get all the details.
Once again  were have two generous sponsors Milk Coffee Digital Stamps and Sir Stampalot.
My 3 choices from the list are
1.  On the base card I used a  leaf Mask  colouring over  with Pans Pastels .
2.  The next layer was dry embossed, [clocks and time pieces], which I then sandpapered over to distress a little before lightly rubbing an old ink pad over the surface.
The ladies are from  Grapics 45 Ladies Diary pad.
 3.  They are layered onto a piece of coloured card that I distressed using  a pair of blunt scissors.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
