Whisper Soft Grey Flowers

I made this card for Stamp Club this past week. I tried to keep the card simple layers as I taught the girls - two step stamping with the stamp-ma-jig. I was dying to do more layers but I didn't - I think I might give this card a make over and not limit myself to SU ONLY so that I can embellish it - the poor card is screaming for some flowers and brads. The color combo was from this weeks color challenge on SCS - CC159 using soft sky, basic grey and whisper white. The flower was embossed with clear glassy glaze twice and then put in the freezer for 15 minutes and cracked for the cracked glass look. I really like this technique for flowers and looks great with this color combo. My sample was left in the freezer for probably over an hour so I got a fantastic cracking on it.

Hanna Stamps sneak peeks for 2 new Hanna stamps start tomorrow - I have some Hanna cards as well as some cards made with new Riley's to show you.

This is great, Shannon!! I did this with my girls this month too, but we had a hard time getting them to work properly. I think that with my freezer we should have left them for much longer too! I will have to try it again and keep it in a lot longer.

Can't wait to see the sneak peaks!! :0)

Wow! If I had this stamp, I would certainly be asking if I could use it for my club as well. It's just wonderful!
