What's New Pussycat - CACB #57


Share a new technique you've learned or some new stash you got during the festivities.

 My new stash is Starburst Stains I was lucky enough to win in a recent challenge and and a new TH distress ink pad, frayed burlap.
I also tried something new - see below *
I  have used part of the  music collage 3 digi from Crafty Ann's shop. I made two prints on canvas paper, coloured the roses and leaves with starburst stains on one, cut them out and added them to the first print with silicone  to add some dimension.

The small piece of BP is polished stone, from the shop, words are a Penny Black stamp and the corner flourish came with a wood mounted alphabet set I bought many years ago.

The flowers look lovely with this beautiful iridescent sheen. The roses and leaves DO stand out from the card although you can't see it here.

* I embossed a well washed GU key lime pie lid, die cut the flourish and then 'coloured' it with some metallic rub-on stuff.

Other additions
Seam binding ribbon
Punched butterfly
