Another Thursday! the perfect day to show you my inspirational creation for this week challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday. This time we are challenging you to create something using your favorite technique.
At this time my favorite technique is embossing, I got my cuttlebug this summer from my dear friend Gaby and I can not stop playing with it... I´ve been reading tutorials and watching videos so I can make the best of the machine and I´m loving it!! (but it´s a lot healthier than eating you-know-what ☺). I simply embossed the front of the card and then sanded it a bit, it helped to pop the gorgeous design of the embossing plate. Then I decided it needed to sparkle so I glued some iridescent sequins and seed beads. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment on a scrap of vellum paper and placing a dragonfly (a very old rub-on) with foam tape for dimension. And that´s it! very simple indeed... but it looks very nice in real life.

As I told you a few days ago, I also want to show you a few more pins I made by recycling those cute expresso cups I´m loving so much and embellished them with scraps of fabric a sweet and very talented lady gave me, thank you Vicenta!! they are gorgeous!

Thank you for looking!
