Is there anything my Big Shot can't do? Well, it's not so good at housework or at producing chocolate for me to scoff at random points of the day, but apart from that, it's a pretty nifty bit of kit! One of my favourite embossing folders of all time is the wonderful lattice work and today I've used it to make a card for Mynnette's Technique Tuesday challenge which, this month, is the faux pressed flowers technique.
I followed the sketch at Mojo Monday, but just couldn't make the ribbon work at the top so I moved it to the bottom, which given that I didn't particularly want a sentiment, worked better for me. Hope this is allowed!
Here's what I came up with:
I wanted to try the faux pressed flowers technique with smaller flowers because I thought they would look good on the glorious swirl from Everything Eleanor. I'm really pleased with the result. I added tiny pearls to the centres, which was a bit of an exercise in patience! This is such an easy yet effective technique. Here's a close-up of the embossing:
