I fell in love with the Bonnet Bouquet Stamp Set and couldn't wait to try it out!

Supply List:

I decided I really wanted to do the Cracked Glass technique with this card!

First, I started by printing off the Digital version of the image (digi version - DIGI838J).  I trimmed it to the size I wanted to use and then covered the entire image with Veramark Ink.  I sprinkled on the Super Thick Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.  I repeated the steps 2 more times to make a very thick, glossy layer of embossing powder.  I placed the image in the freezer for about 5 minutes and then came the FUN!  CRACKING!  I gently cracked the frozen piece of paper until I got the amount of cracks I wanted.  How fun and easy!



I made the background by stamping the sentiment over and over.  Then I applied some Aquamarine Embellishment Mousse to distress it.  

I stamped the main sentiment using Vesamark Ink and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. All the layers were adhered with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and I finished it off with some Sunlit Meadow Glitter Drops & Bright Metallic Gold Crystal Drops.

The next stop on our blog hop is the amazingly talented Eret and you can find her blog HERE.

I hope you enjoyed my card and our new release!  Sometimes the simplest of techniques can make amazing cards!

Until next time,
