One card many techniques

Hello frens,

Today I have a quick card for you all where i have tried to put many techniques in a single card.Let me show you the card first and then talk more on this.

So here is my card where You can notice I have done some stenciling, stamping, coloring , distressing and trying few new techniques like giving crackle effect.I have used different products from different brands for this card but my main inspiration behind the card was Altenew  August 2017 Challenge

Here's how I have made this card...So i took a main cardbase and distressed a little on the borders with peeled paint distress oxide ink.Then i have put a Kraft card stock on top of it where i have done stenciling using TCW Art is stencil,I have used finnabair modelling paste for that.

The flower in the center is from Altenew stamp set Dahlia blossoms,I stamped the flower on separate sheet,have also done gold heat embossing in the inner petals before water coloring it with peeled paint distress oxide ink.After that i added  Rangers Crackle accent on top of it..You can see the effect in close up pics here.

In the center I have added a white cardstock where i have used walnut stain distress oxide ink again,added an organza ribbon to keep my card with Altenew theme.

Sentiment is from Just right stamps.I also added some cup sequins in the end to the card to keep gold green theme .I am below adding pics of material used 

Hope u all enjoyed my card as I did.I am also entering this card to Altenew Challenge.

Happy crafting

happy me with Altenew

Hello frens,

Long time,yes I got busy with lot of other personal things in the last month but each day I was crafting,maybe little less than usual days..I am sure all crafters will agree with me..FOR us crafting is real OXYGEN..hehh.

Now coming back I have beautiful card made with Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamp set.I have also used Altenew Happy die for sentiment.Sharing a quick picture of my card with a close up pic as well.

While I sat down to start after a break,i really needed an inspiration dose and what best than Altenew August challenge Inspiration.I have always admired Erum's work and her coloring skills.Sharing the picture of the challenge along with the link

I loved the unusual color combination.For my card I kept color theme as my inspiration.My base cardstock is kraft cardstock giving me a nice brown background.I have heat embossed the flowers with gold embossing powder and then used alcohol ink for coloring.For this card i tried creating splatters through heat embossing techniques only.

The sentiment is die cut from Altenew happy die on a gold cardstock.The right hand border is also done on gold cardstock with the help of border punch.Lastly added some cup sequins and my card is done.

This one looked much more beautiful in real than what you can see in picture.Maybe I was not able to capture real gold and green effects.

Attaching this card to current challenges:
