Botanicals Card Kit hop

Hello!!

Tonight I am joining a few other Gina K designer for a special blog hop. We are featuring the new Botanicals stamp set with a special technique themed blog hop event!
The Botanicals Stamp set is part of this months card Kit Designed by Jessica Fick.
The card kit contains the Botanicals stamp set, Pure Luxury Cardstock (1 sheet of each of Red Hot, Fresh Asparagus, Sweet Corn, Chocolate Brown and Heavy Base White), Gold Brads, and the printed instruction sheet with photo, measurements and additional supplies list.

The technique I chose to use tonight is 'Cracked Glass'. I love the look of this technique and have to say it is one of my favorites.
I have two cards to share tonight.
My first card has a lot of distressing going on. I used Gina's Soft Sand, Cranberry Tart, Tan Leather and White Pure Luxury papers along with pattern papers from DCWV's Craft Stack.
Here is a closer look at the cracked glass. I used Versamark Dazzle to do the cracked glass and it added a gold shimmer to the cracked glass. Can you see some of the gold on the flower?
I finished off the inside of the card with more Crafty pattern paper and one of the sentiments from the Botanicals stamp set.
Let check out my next card...

I used Gina's Chocolate Brown, Turquoise See and Ivory Pure Luxury papers. The pattern papers are DCWV Linen Closet.

Here is a closer look at the cracked glass. I used the regular versmark for the cracked glass on this card. I again finished the inside of the card with more of the linen closet pattern paper and another sentiment from the Botanicals stamp set.

Please visit these designer's blogs for their project using a variety of techniques all made with the Botanicals stamp set:
