Blogger's Challenge!

Two days of blogging in a row for me...can you believe it? I can't...lol! I guess that is what happens when you have a clean area to work in...lol!

Since I began stamping, I have wanted to try the Cracked Glass Technique (click HERE for directions). I bought all of the products that I needed and I couldn't wait to give it a whirl. That was four years ago...lol!

This week's Blogger's Challenge was the perfect time to finally put all of those products to good use. Our challenge is to "Pick a Technique". So here it is...my first try at Cracked Glass. (You can see the cracks better if you click on the photograph.) I think that the technique is fantastic! It was so neat once I pulled my piece out of the freezer and started cracking it!

My main image and sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Upsy Daisy set. I also used Stampin' Up!'s So Saffon, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip. I finished off the Chocolate strip with some faux stitching. Are you interested in trying a few new techniques? Just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right side bar for some ideas. Thanks so much for stopping by today...Toodles! :D
