For this Stampotique Designers Challenge they wanted us to use the Faux Barnwood Technique or another technique from Technique Junkies.
For my card I started with the color plum for my base coat then orchid for the top. I stamped Glimmering Hope in black in then colored with pencils and cut her out. I also used a purple gel pen to help set off some of the lines in her dress and outline her bow and star. I punched 3 small flowers from some text pages then added a pink gem in the middle of each. I dont know if it was because I was drying it or because it was on cardstock but the crackles turned out smaller then my first attempt that I did in my journal so they are not as noticeable unless it's in your hands, but I still liked the way it turned out and this is a super easy and fun technique.
I added some ribbons and wrote "I feel pretty" because that's the song that's always in my head when I use this stamp :)
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog because the design team has some awesome samples with this technique.
