Some Wednesday Whimsy

Good Morning!

How is your week going? We have been busy here with school and work and also visiting with my aunt who is staying with us for a week. It's been really nice to have her here, we've missed her. I have not had much time for crafting lately with all the Whimsy mess last week and visits this week, but I did manage to squeeze in one card yesterday.

I finally inked up my Maya and Marissa stamp from the Crissy Armstrong Collection at Whimsy Stamps. I can't believe we released this image in July and I've only just now had the time to ink it up. Shame shame!

I went for vintage with this card and did lots of distressed and some cracked glass on the image. I used the crackle glue from Inkssentials to achieve the cracked glass look. It cracked really well this time, you never quite know how it will turn out. The papers are K and Company and have been distressed with an edge distressing tool. I've embellished with ribbons and flowers.

This card fits the challenges at:
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Anything Goes - sponsored by Whimsy
Pixie Cottage: Sketch and/or Fun and Games
The Pink Elephant: Aqua, designer paper, embellishment

Thank you for stopping by today. I should be back at least on Friday with a new card for Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. Have a super day!

Oh Denise, this is so beautiful! The layout is perfectly balanced, and so are the colours. The cracked glass did turn out wonderfully! And you're right, it's luck of the draw (or crackle!). I love all your detailing!!
