Crafty Sentiments goes vintage


The challenge this week at Crafty Sentiments is VINTAGE. So get you inks and tools to the ready and join in the fun. For my card I decided to have a go at the cracked glass technique. Doesn't show so well in the photo but it worked a treat:) My image is a brand new Lilly now available at Crafty Sentiments.
Image - Lilly from Crafty Sentiments
Papers - K-Ology
Embellishments - butterfly die, lace, nestie die, distress inks, ultra embossing powder
Medium - promarkers, distress inks
Sentiment - ticket from HERE
I stamped and coloured the image then using my versamark ink pad inked the whole die cut and sprinked with ultra embossing powder. I repeated this process 4 times and left to cool. It was then bent to make glass like cracks through the die cut.
I would like to enter this into
Flutter by Wednesday - open challenge
Simon Says stamp Challenge - bingo (lace, embossing and flowers)
There She Goes Clear Stamps - wet embossing
Do it with Digis - pink and girly
I have hit the 300 mark with my lovely followers the latest of whom is MONIKA!!
It makes my day to read all the lovely comments I get:)
