CCM, Technique Tuesday & CAS-ual Fridays

How are we all? I guess you've had a big Saturday already (like me) or are probably just about to start yours. Today I have made a card for three challenges.

Crafty Cardmakers - this is my second card for Winged Things
Technique Tuesday - also my second card for the Faux Leather challenge
CAS-ual Fridays - Embossing (Dry, Wet or Both)

I have made a panel by tearing bits of masking tape and placing them every which way. I have then used my brayer this time instead of a sponge. Using Concord Crush and Real Red with my brayer, I applied the colour. I then covered the whole panel with clear embossing powder and used my heat gun. The effect is a really shiny look that is fabulous!
I have then used my Butterfly Embosslit folder with Brushed Gold cardstock to create my little butterflies.
I was going to put a sentiment as well but decided to stop. I really wanted the Faux Leather look to be a focal point, while using the Gold Butterflies to draw the eye.

Thanks so much for looking xx
