Technique Tuesday: Faux Pressed Flowers

Hi, again!  It's the first Tuesday of June, so that means that a new Technique Tuesday challenge has gone live!!!  I hope you'll join me--I want to share the joy of learning and paper crafting with as many of you as possible!!!  Thanks to all who joined me last month!  All the creations made with the Velveteen Stamping technique were absolutely gorgeous!  Stay tuned because on the 15th I'll announce Top Winner and Showcased cards!

Now, back to the task at hand!  This month, the tutorial is all about Faux Pressed Flowers!  I've used this technique before, but way a long time ago before I met all of you and started entering challenges.  You can see that post here.  It cracks me up, because this was the ORIGINAL Technique Tuesday post, but I never got it up and going because I was young and naive about blogging. *sigh* BUT I DIGRESS...

Here's my card for this month's technique~

Details~



Thanks for stopping by--I cannot wait to see your creations using the Faux Pressed Flowers technique!  Happy crafting! :)
