Card Swap

This is a card I did for my upline's technique swap. About 12 of us picked different techniques and made a card front out of them to share with everyone. The idea was to be able to mount them for a 6 x 6 technique book or to be able to use them. Since I already have a tech journal for the classes I teach I made my samples into cards.

I picked the cracked glass technique for my card front and of course I had to use the Blossoms Abound set (I just adore this set!!) I love this technique - I think it makes my cards look older, more distressed. You could also use the same basic technique to create a tile, just don't crack it when it cools. I hope everyone will decide to give this technique a try, it is really quite easy to do.
Stamps: Blossoms Abound
Ink: Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Lovely Lilac, Elegant Eggplant, Creamy Caramel, Versamark
Paper: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Powder

I keep meaning to try this technique, but haven't yet. You did a great job with it. I love how you colored the leaves. They look so real.

This is wonderful! Between the images and the cracked glass it totally reminds me of a piece of grandma's china. Beautiful!
