A Spring Day ~ Cracked Glass





I just found out today that THIS CARD was picked as the favorite at The Pink Elephant for Sketch Challenge #50...Woohoo! To celebrate, I had to try the new sketch, The Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge #55!

Another demonstrator asked me recently to demonstrate a technique at an area stamping event in March, so I've been looking and practicing with a few techniques. Tonight, I thought I'd encorporate one of my new favorite techniques, Cracked Glass, for Our Creative Corner's Try a New Technique Challenge. Click HERE to view the tutorial and video at Splitcoaststampers...it helped me a ton!

What lovely pastels. Darling image and wonderful use of the sketch. I have only done cracked glass a few times - good reminder to do it again as I love the look of it.
