Here are the GD's Gorgeous Creations.

I decided to go for my favourite technique which is - as you might have noticed - stitching, or card embroidery

Bonnie GD

The technique I used was making my own rolled paper flowers for the embellishment. 

I punched circles in 3 different sizes. Then I cut a spiral toward the center of each circle.  Starting from the outside, I rolled each into a tight coil, loosened it a bit, and applied glue to the bottom to secure.

Billie GD

I did water color background technique using 3 Ranger inks, spritzed with water on craft sheet then added water color paper, dried it and added paper again to drops that were still on craft sheet. Dried and stamped the image. I used copics only on leaves and added purple to center of flower, added little orange. Rest is just the background colors. I did distress the water color paper.

When Rachelle told me theme for this challenge is "Techniques" I just new it was time to try something different, so I pulled out my paints and got to work. My technique is Finnabair influenced with my shabby touch, using paints to watercolour. I hope you enjoy. 

I used the techniques : debossing - stamping and coloring.

The techniques I used: distress, inking, layering, embossing ("cold embossing" using the embossing folder and "hot embossing" using the embossing powder).

it's a CAS card with dry embossing, heat embossing and copic coloring.

Leslie GD
I created a CAS card, used an uncolored image and dry embossed on patterned paper.
