Where do we go now?

Life changes always bring questions, don't they? But I heard something nice at the movies today; the wrong train sometimes take you to the right station. It had a soothing and comforting feel. But you could flip it; the right train can take you to the wrong station! Card making is so much easier than life philosophy, so lets move on...

I used a for me new technique for the card. Creating a background, adding a heat embossed pattern, colouring the background again and misting with perfect pearls. Then removing the embossed areas with an iron, using copy papers to protect the iron.

4 Crafty Chicks: Crazy Egg Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Challenge: Anything Goes

I used:
Glossy cardstock, Distress inks
Hero Arts Plaid stamp, extra fine embossing powder, embossing ink
Perfect pearls for shine
Iron to remove the embossing
3D squares for dimension
Obsession Impression sentiment, Nestabilities dies
Star shaped sequins
