Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Jenny Hall

Image may contain: text

Welcome Back everyone 😊
Today I am hopping with the Crazy Crafters Team and special guest Jenny Hall

We The Crazy Crafters have each chosen a project of Jenny's to CASE (Copy And Selective Edit)
You are currently here me me (Kim Oliver) and I have a full list of all participants closer to the end of my blog.

Here is the project I have chosen of Jenny's to CASE.

vintage style

Jenny created her card using the Cracked Glass technique using layers of heated embossing powder.
This was something I haven't tried before, I thought...
Why Not!

Here is my card.
I used the same layout for this technique as it has an old world feel with it that this technique deserves.

Dragonfly Daze

I am over the moon with my first attempt!

Before my next attempt I MUST order some more embossing powder though 😲 lol. I just need to do this some more! It's so much fun hahaha.

I followed Jenny's instructions and layered the embossing powder 11 times, but my crack wasn't sharp. I ended up with more of a crazed effect. 
Which I quite like BTW 😍

HERE is Jenny's video showing how she made her card.

Angled View

To create the scene I used two stamp sets. Dragonfly Dreams and Butterfly Basics.
I used the Shimmery white card stock to stamp my scene onto.
I masked over the dragonfly after the original stamping. I then stamped the fern leaf over the top. Being masked this gives the effect of having the fern fronds behind the dragonfly.
I coloured the dragonfly using the NEW STAMPIN BLENDS!!!
