Technical Flags!

Good day crafters!
How are your new years resolutions keeping? Mine was to keep up with commincation a tad better than I did last year, hence why the blogs are flowing... well 2 so far this year! :)
I'm really enjoying it and taking part in challenges is helping me to remember product names, which is always handy! Today I have taken part in 2 challenges, Freshly Made Sketches have come up with a fab CAS design and Color Throwdown have some beautiful colour combinations. 
I used a variety of techniques on this card.... even got the sewing needle out! 
See if you can guess what technique I have used on each flag.
