Cracked Glass Blossom

I really like the cracked glass technique...I just don't think to use it!! The results are just like a snowflake, no two are ever alike. Rubbing ink over the cracks just really makes them pop. I use this set, Blossoms Abound, often when doing challenge cards. The results are always beautiful and it's fun to play with different colors for the flower. Here I used Groovy guava and Ruby red for the flower and Handsome hunter (or was it Forest foliage?) with Sage shadow for the leaves. Guava and hunter are two colors I rarely use...this was a VSN challenge after all so why not use them!! This card measures 5 1/4" square. Thanks for looking. I have one more VSN card to show you, probably tomorrow. I can't believe I got 7 cards done. I had 3 more I really wanted to do but ran out of time. Funny how the family doesn't understand "Mom needs to stamp now."

Gorgeous, GORGEOUS card! Love these colors, and that main image is such a soft and pretty focal point...especially with this technique!
