Created for the technique challenge. I must say this wasn't a very user friendly technique! I found it very hard to stay within the lines. This was actually my first try, but after letting it sit for TWO HOURS, I thought it was dry, flipped it over and smeared it. 2nd and 3rd attempts were even less satisfactory, so I decided to use this one with the hole in one of the petals... ugh!
I knew I wanted to use some nestabilities dies for the window, but really struggled with the color combination. I like the end result, but the process of getting here wasn't much fun.

Simply stunning, that's what this is, simply stunning!!! You did a fantastic job on the challenge, even if it did take more than one try! I love your end results! Great corners with brads, love the faux stitching and I love the scalloped window! This is just a wonderful card! TFS :0)

It's gorgeous!! I think you did a great job...I had the same problems with this technique, but I never would have known if you hadn't mentioned them! I actually had to look for the 'hole'...I thought it was just clever shading ;)
Love your layout and the brads in the photo corners! They really give this card 'presence'! tfs :)
