Cracked Sunflower


I hope everyone had a wonderful Wednesday! I am happy that the work week is half over!

I seem to be a day behind this week. I can not seem to get my cards uploaded in time for the challenges that I made them for. This one was for the Wednesday technique challenge on Stamp TV and was suppose to be submitted by 8pm last night...see I am a day behind! Hee hee!
The challenge was to use the cracked glass technique. Can you see the cracks in the sunflower?
The sunflower is from Gina K's A Year of Flowers. I stamped the sunflower itself twice with Tuxedo black ink on layering weight white pure luxury paper and colored one with copics. After cutting it out I heat embossed it 4 times with ultra thick embossing power and stuck it in the freezer for 15 minutes. The stem and leaves were also colored with copics and re-colored with a versamarker and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Next I sponged the So Saffron and Pretty in Pink around them. I popped up the sunflower.
The sentiment is from Gina K's Thanks a Million stamp set and punched out with the Fancy Tags.

Thank you for stopping by and have a very blessed evening!

Very pretty card Sharri! I love that technique. So classy. I'm not happy that you missed your deadline, but gosh, I'm so happy to hear I am not the only one that scrambles to meet them! lol! I would LOVE to do some of the challenges at Stamp TV, but I only have a couple of their stamp sets. I hope to purchase more soon. Again, beautiful card!!! Love it!

It's really lovely Sharri. I am so behind on all my DT stuff, and haven't done any challenges for about a month. I need to stop shopping!!
