This Sistah's Favorite Technique!

I'm back sharing a mixed media card for the Sisterhood of Crafter's "Favorite Technique" Challenge.  Yep, what's your favorite crafting technique?  Now through June 7th, we want to you to share your inspiration with us.  Link your project and you could be one of our Top Sistahs!  Check out the details and guidelines on the Sisterhood of Crafters Blog.
Not only am I sharing my favorite techniques today, but I'm also sharing a good friend, Pam Bray's, new line of papers and stamps, Sensations.  The papers are the perfect quality for mixed media projects and have the most amazing designs and colors.  She also has other paper lines, flair embellishments and embossing powders.  You can find them in Canada at Wild Whispers and in the US at The Funkie Junkie.

Here's some inspiration using my favorite techniques, texture and dimension...

I love the vibrant colors on these papers.  I've used a heart stencil and glass bead gel to create a cascading line of hearts down the side for texture.  The flowers and heart are fussy cut and have added dimension using foam dots.   The sentiment stamp is die cut and then matted using a scalloped square die turned 90 degrees.
Here's a closer look at the glass bead gel hearts.  This media goes on opaque and dries clear allowing you to visualize the beads.
A close up of the dimension I added to the heart and flowers.
