PTI Anniversary Challenge - Sampler Squares

Hi everyone!
This challenge was certainly a challenge for me.  Took me a few days to come up with my idea, but I am quite happy with the out come and it was a lot of fun putting it all together!

Here is the challenge:
Create a new card that features nine 1-1/2" squares, each altered in a different way.  
Mount them all onto a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" square card base.

Here is my card:

The 9 different techniques I used starting from the top left to right:
Ombre Stamping
Inlaid die cutting
Regular die cutting and adding dimension
Stamping With Neutrals
Masking sentiment
Emboss resist
Ink splattering
Confetti Cluster Stamping
Watercoloring an embossed image

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Bitty Butterflies, Sketched Shapes & Confetti Toss (PTI)
Ink:  Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst (PTI), Dandelion (Memento)
Paper:  White, Black, Hibiscus Burst
Accessories:  Bitty Butterflies: Cover Plate, White Embossing powder, Black Distress ink, Twine
