Simon Says..........Favorite Technique

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

This week we want you to share your Favorite Technique with us!  The team is playing with My Favorite Things goodies!

One of my favorite techniques is the Eclipse, or Hidden Sentiment, technique.  Here's my card.

supplies: white, Audrey Blue, and Green Leaf cardstock, My Favorite Things Big Birthday Wishes die, and their (retired) Flashy Florals layered stamp set, Altenew mini inks, Doodlebug sprinkles

Starting with a panel of white A2 card, I first made some little pencil dots to guide me where the BIG sentiment would lie.  Then I stamped flowers and leaves in that general area, masking as needed. The centers of each flower were white embossed as the final step.  

Next I centered the large die on the panel and made my cut.  I saved the "BIG" letters and the details of the smaller words.  Next I attached 2 strips of blue and green cardstock under the lower words, then glued the panel to my card base.  I used those little pieces of the die-cut that I had saved to add details to the letters.

All that remained was to cut about 6 more layers of "BIG" and glue them to the stamped layers before adding them to the finished card, along with some matching sprinkles for the centers of each flower.  

Now it's your turn!  We have a $25.00 gift certificate 

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
