Sugar Sugar cracked glass



The technique over on Sugar Sugar for March is "cracked glass". I have used a lovely Sugar Nellie image by Leanne Ellis and watercoloured her. I then embossed the image with thick embossing powder and popped it in the freezer. When I took it out you simply crack the image. The papers used are from HOTP. I added a strip of Bazzill and some felt trim before mounting the image on Black Magic cardstock from Core'dinations. I sanded the edges to reveal the tiniest hint of pink. The image was then attached to the card with foam pads. I will add the sentiment later when I decide what occasion to use the card for.

Here is a card I made for a work colleague who gets married in a couple of weeks. The template is from Colour My World and I have used papers and embellishments from Creative Imaginations. I bound the letters with my Bind-it-All and attached some ribbons. Finally I added some flowers punched from retro flower punches. She loved it.
thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave
Have a good weekend
