Pretty as a Picture - DT for MMCS

Hi all

Today sees a new challenge over at My Mums Craft Shop and this week our theme is

Embossing (wet or dry)

We are sponsered by the fabulous

So for my card I tried something a bit different and tried out the cracked glass technique which for those of you that don't know - involves tripple embossing your image with clear embossing powder, putting it in the fridge to go hard, then bending the image so that it cracks, and finally rubbing on some ink into the cracks to give it the vintage feel.  I used one of the new Wild Rose Studio Annabelles Meadow Printed Panels which are so gorgeous and detailed and already coloured in lol!!!

Please do pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my team mates fabulous creations this week.

Thanks for popping by my blog today
