This is another VSN card. I absolutely love the technique, it does take a little more time but it is well worth the effort. It is the cracked glass technique. It is achieved by layering several coats of clear ep or glassy glaze ep and heating with a heat gun. For extra glitter I threw in a layer of clear ep that has glitter in it.
I had forgotten just how pretty Bashful blue and Pretty in Pink look together. I chose the stamp set Bloomin' Beautiful. I can't resist a Hydrangea.this is such a pretty stamp.
I water coloured it with Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Lavender Lace. On the Bashful Blue background I stamped it first with chocolate chip craft ink, and when it was dry I ran it through the cuttle bug using the distressed stripes folder. I finished it off with some pretty Taffeta ribbon I don't know why I waited so long to buy it, it's sooo pretty. I also used some of my silver hardware from the new mini catty. I am a hardware hoarder. It is so hard to use it cause then it will be gone and the catty only runs til May 31st. Hopefully it will be in the new catty in August.
