Upsy Daisy Cracked Glass





Two challenges were the inspiration for my card today...the Monday MOJO Sketch #128 and the Color Throwdown #82 using Not Quite Navy (I could swear I read it as Night of Navy) Old Olive/Vanilla & Ruby Red.

I have been making samples for my demonstration for an upcoming stamping event...and this is one of the samples that I will have to showcase for the demonstration of the Cracked Glass technique...and more coming soon:)

The Upsy Daisy floral image was stamped with markers and then spritzed with the Color Spritzer. I love the vintage look of the image stamped on the naturals cardstock, spritzed, and then embossed.

Great and unique placement of your stitching. I love the cracked glass technique, something I've never tried. I really should start a "go-to" list of things I want in incorporate into my cards. There are so many wonderful things to try!
