♥ Grown with Love ♥ {Cracked Glass Technique}

This week's Make it Monday challenge at Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink blog, Capture the Moment, is to use the cracked glass technique. This is alot of fun to do and very easy! You can see a How-To video HERE.


I used Papertrey Ink's new stamp set called Garden Variety as well as the new Seed Packet Frame and Picket Fence Dies. (LOVE these!) I stamped some grass and flowers "inside" the packet and then added several layers of clear embossing powder. I then put it in the freezer for a few minutes, took it out and then bent the paper back and forth to add the cracks. I then adhered the packet frame over it. SO FUN!


I also used some Girls Paperie paper, seam binding ribbon, mini roses, hemp cord, MS punched butterflies and some Liquid Pearls.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Hugs...

Gorgeous, I lurk a lot and get lost looking at all the beautiful things you make. Love the shadow box, might have one here not being used.
