Peaceful Wishes

Here is another Holiday card with the Cracked Glass Technique. I used the Peaceful Wishes set this time. I love how it makes the card look so vintage. This set is a MUST have!!

I stamped the holly branch with artichoke, and then colored in the berries with the bravo burgundy marker. I then embossed the image 3 times with the glassy glaze embossing powder. I let it sit overnight, and then put it in the freezer. I forgot about it and did not take it out until the afternoon, so it cracked all over the place.

I stamped the holly branch with artichoke on the background piece, and then stamped over the artichoke with craft white ink. The sentiment piece looked so white compared to the holly piece so I sponged over the sentiment with river rock.
Well what do you think? Should this be one of the Holiday Card Stamp Camp cards?
Stamps: Peaceful Wishes . Inks: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Craft White, River Rock, VersaMark . Paper: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Confetti Cream . Extras: Distressing Tool, Glassy Glaze Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Copper Brads, Sponge

Things are so busy these days. Between work, home, 7th grade homework, and just day to day living I am totally whipped. Why do I have to go through 7th grade again? I know -- because I have a son who is in 7th grade. He is in all honors classes, and has so much homework every night. Sometimes I feel sorry for him, but other times I feel sorry for ME. It is a good thing I only have 2 kids. I could not imagine doing all this more than twice.
On another note, remember I told you that I lost all my bookmarks twice? I made a word document to keep all my bookmarks, so I would not lose them again. Well night before last I found that the word document was deleted. I had no idea how this could happen. Guess who has been looking at my stamping files? Yep Brandon!! The little stinker is the one that has erased my files. I have not received a email from FeedBlitz in the last two days, so I have not been able to comment on any one's site. (boo hoo).

This card is beautiful!! I love how you did the cracked glass. I understand about losing documents. I had my son's baby calendar of his firsts on a Word document and the computer started having problems and I lost everything. It still bothers me!

This is GORGEOUS! This just my be my favorite of all your cards.
Have you tried coloring over the cracks w/ chocolate chip, then wiping off w/ a tissue to add more aging to the image? Just wondering...
