Happy Monday everyone!
Welcome to our latest challenge, I am hosting this challenge and have chosen the theme 'Pick Three Different Techniques'
I've taken inspiration from my youngest daughter's recent 3rd birthday and therefore would like to see 3 different techniques on your card or project. Take your pick of 3 from the following list and be sure to state which 3 you've used:
- Embossing (wet or dry)
- Making your own flowers
- Paper piecing/patchwork
- Shrink plastic
Please ensure your creation has three techniques from the list and that you tell us which three you have used to qualify for a winner or Top 5 slot.
PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE RULES BEFORE ADDING YOUR CREATION AND CHECK IT MEETS THE CRITERIA AS LAID OUT ABOVE - ANY ENTRY NOT COMPLYING WILL UNFORTUNATELY BE REMOVED

So onto my card:
I made this for Maya's 3rd birthday and used the following 3 techniques:
- Distressing (ink-distressed the image edge and scuffed up the background paper edge with my distress tool)
- Masking (I made the background paper using a mask and Picket Fence Distress Stain)
- Shrink plastic (look closely...it's small!! the Happy Birthday sentiment was cut from shrink plastic using a Marianne die, shrunk in the oven and then coloured with a ProMarker
The image is from Wee Stamps and is coloured with ProMarkers. The leaves, circles, oval, swirls and no 3 were all die cut using Marianne, Cuttlebug and Spellbinder dies.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from my stash.
I love the cute mermaid image and as Maya seems to love swimming, I coloured her hair blonde to look like my own little mermaid!!
