This was my January card for our card swap group here in New Zealand
The challenge was to make a card using a 'forgotten' technique, and I chose the faux torn paper technique, as it is one I love but have not used for ages.
The centre panel was blended with two shades of green ink, and the lighter colour used to add a wee border right around the focal panel
The images on the inked strip were ephemera from a New Zealand firm, Imagine If, from their 2022 calendar, where there was a page of ephemera included.
I coated the dragonfly's wings with Wink of Stella
The sentiment was a magazine freebie , stamped in a deep red to match the flowers
Some red flat back pearls were adhered to finish the card.
I finished the inside with two strips of washi tape, layered together

These were the first images I have used from the Ephemera Sheet
Think we all forget various techniques but it's nice to revisit, I tidied up my EP's yesterday and found several pots of UTEE, so just might get the melt pot out. Pretty colours on this one.
awesome Maxine. I love this technique. So much fun
0A technique I had forgotten about, thanks for the reminder! I also saw it on Annies site on facebook, but you are under a different name
Thank you for sharing this Mel it's very pretty and love the simplicity but stunning result x
It's fabulous! I really like your faux torn paper technique. It makes your card so much more interesting. Great mayfly and a wonderful red and green color scheme.

Maxine, the forgotten technique you used turned out amazing! I love the look of those torn pieces. And what a gorgeous flower. Your card is beautiful!
Great technique and a VERY pretty card! Love the dragonfly and flowers. A perfect way to use that sketch!
Love your card Maxine, the faux ripped technique looks amazing on this card and definitely looks torn! I love the beautiful roses and of course the dragonfly, the shimmer and sparkle is perfect for him. A beautiful card indeed! Hugs, Brenda

I had forgotten this technique too and it's great to be reminded of it with your prettily inked design today. Thank you for joining in with the challenge at Everybody Art with this delightful card. Hugs, Lesley
I love the torn strip effect and the fact that it is a piece you coloured yourself and echoed in the green mount for the main image. Love the roses and the idea of the three pearls.
Blessings, Neet xx

Those red flat backed pearls look just right on this card and tie in with the red of the flowers. I love this technique and it is something I am thinking of trying for my annual batch of cards for my stamping club.
A very. striking card.
Blessings, Neet xx
