A Card for Just Magnolia Challenge - "Anything Goes" Cracked Glass Technique


Good Morning Ladies, well here we are at yet the start of another week, and Ive no doubt a lot of you are just back from dropping the children of for the their first day of the new School Term, though I gather Scotland has been back a month all ready.
Todays card has been made for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Anything Goes" this was changed from the original idea of Cracked Glass as I think the DT thought that we wouldnt be able to give it a go, well Ive tried and hope that this is good enough for them. Ive used this lovely image of Tilda with newspapers, this I had in my box all ready coloured and punched out, so all I did was use a versafine inkpad to ink it all over and some UTEE powder to emboss it, I did three layers then cracked it by bending the image back and forth, it just cracked all over the place so its a bit messy and all over the place.
Anyway the base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card and one of three papers from the Nitwit Downloads this set is from the "Affection Collection" a very pretty rose design is the first base paper and on top of this is a beige one cut in a strip with the heart border punch used along both of the edges, the third mount is a piece of beige card with a third paper a striped one which Ive used the same border and corner punch on, and then around the middle is a strip of pink ribbon that has hearts on, this was attached to the back of the first mount. The sentiment is one from my stash this was mounted on a piece of pink scalloped card and stuck at the bottom on the right, and my mounted image in the centre.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray down the left hand side and attached it to the card with silicone and some punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
