Lots of Poinsettias




I don't know that I really like this card...  I need to stick with what I know and stop going off into the unknown.  Another "vintage" looking card.  I do like the crackle technique.  This is new to me.  I do not think I got enough crackle as I want but I didn't have the ultra thick embossing just regular clear.  I did many layers and then stuck it in the fridge and then cracked it and got about 3 vertical cracks.  This stamp is OLD.  It is probobly one of the very first stamps I ever got about 11 years ago.  I distressed the edges and wish I would have distressed the first layer instead of punching it.  Probobly too many flowers.  OK enough of me talking about this card.  Made for the following challenges

Just us girls crackle technique
Sunday sketch and stamp sketch
Totally gorjuss flowers
Christmas stampin brads
Fairy fun friday embossing (clear embossing)
Fussy and fancy christmas colors
Charisma something new (crackle technique)
Cooking with Katie 3 papers, something clear (embossing) and a song I'll be home for Christmas
Lexis flower power
Christmas card stamping sparkle and shine

Fabulous image! Do you rub ink into the cracks of the image to distress further? I have not tried this technique as I hate to heat emboss - shhh don't tell!

Hello Tami, this is such a sweet image. I love your crackled glass technique, it gives a nice vintage look. flowers are gorgeous, as well as the nice lace border. Thank you for joining us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and hope to see you again soon.

Nice work on the cracked glass technique, I find if I stick it in my freezer rather than my refrigerator it cracks well. Thanks for joining us at FFF, we look forward to seeing more of your creations in future challenges.
