Top Tip Tuesday Challenge #24 - your favourite technique or embellishment

 Good Morning and welcome to this week's Top Tip Tuesday Challenge.  This week Eileen has a fabulous tutorial where she shows you how to make a Tim Holtz style folio, full of useful tips and not to be missed, be sure to get on over to the blog and check it out!    The challenge is one I always find tough:  picking a favourite technique!  There are so many, but in the end I opted for using my tiny Scene-It stamps to create landscapes, something I love to do at the moment.  I also sneaked in some dry embossing and some distressing,  another couple of favourites.

The card uses Scene-It stamps from Hobby Art, coloured in with Aquamarker pens, dry embossing sponged with Distress Ink, a bit of twine across the corner and a computer generated sentiment.  Paper is from Stamp Attic.  I've used the sketch from Craft Your Days Away for my layout.  
My card os for the following challenges:
Craft Your Days Away -sketch
Papertake Weekly - anything goes + something old (embossing folder)
Wild Orchid Challenge - anything goes
House of Gilli - use green
