  1. This is so super cool Bibiana. All the end results looks fabulous, and the colkors you used for them is amazing too.
    The most fun thing about seing this is, that these techniques is not even new, only to papercrafting, but I recognize several of them here from many years ago, when I was silk painting, where we used m,any of the technicques too, I just never thought of using them here in papercrafting too, which is actually fun, as now it seems sooo obvious to use many of these here too. And one thing is for sure, it looks really good, and I´m definitely going to try it, and even have several of the items to use for it from back then.
    Have a wonderful week-end and thanks sooo much for opening my eyes, when I couldn´t do so myself LOL.

  2. Thanks for those ideas and the link to Andy. On technique no 3 did you cut the gold card out yourself or is that a die. Couldn't see anything that matched in your list at the end. Gorgeous dies you have used too.
