Here is a very simple 5-1/2 inch square card made with a free digital image I downloaded from Birds Cards, a site that just happened to show up on my recommended reading list from Google Reader. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I matted the finished image and adhered it to my card base (White Daisy Textured cardstock) with foam tape. I pierced a few holes to offset the sentiment, and I was done.
Last night, I attempted the Cracked Glass with this same image. I learned a couple of things. First, it is a very good idea to turn your embossing gun off when adding another layer of embossing powder. Such a mess I made. Not at all funny at the time. More humorous today. Secondly, I discovered that “glass” will not stick to a waxy colored pencil surface. My glass cracked and then proceeded to fall off. Not particularly funny either but an excellent, what-not-to-do learning experience.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy Textured and Hydrangea cardstock; Hydrangea ink pad; Papertrey Ink Take Three: Spring stamp set; Stained Glass Butterfly digital image from Birds Cards; Piercing tool; Stampin’ Up Piercing Guide and Mat; 3M foam mounting tape.
How was your day? Mine was busy, which means it went by fast. Tonight, I’m all tuckered out. I’m on my way to the tub for a relaxing soak and then, it’s off to bed. Hooray for Friday! Enjoy it, and as always, thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogging world. Later…
