With Love.............

Good Morning!!! I had lots of fun making this card inspired by the That's Crafty Challenge "Get Cracking!".

I took some photo's along the way for you with this one so lets make a start!:-

I painted a piece of white card stock with two colours of Imagination Crafts starlights (really bright and shiny!) Then, when that was dry I painted one coat of Creative Expressions crackle glaze and left that to completely dry.  Over the top of those two coats came a layer of navy blue acrylic paint and I waited for the magic to happen.......BEAUTIFUL cracking revealing the golden starlights beneath.

I stamped my flower image (Imagination Crafts) with sticky embossing powder and covered in gilding flakes.

Then covered the flower petals in Glossy Accents and left to dry.

This shows you the stamp that I was working with.  I used a Sizzix die to put pattern to the edge of the cracked card and layered this on to a further sheet of card that I had painted the starlights on to using my brayer.  I also added some floral stamping (Chocolate Baroque) to both sides, one side in bright gold embossing, the other in blue Versafine ink and clear embossed over the top.

Here you can see the beautiful Glossy Accents over the flower petals and sentiment.

A good look at the amazing crackle that has come through.

Nice and super shiny - very happy with that one!

I would like to enter this card in to the Thats Crafty "Get Cracking" challenge.
