Timeless

I don't usually make cards in the 5x7 inch size....but this one just seemed to fall together that way! I used the cracked glass technique on an old SU! set. I stamped each on white cardstock: for the dragonfly I glittered his wings with glitter and glue. For the flower I added some color with chalks. Then I did the cracked glass technique...I did 4 layers of the ultra-think embossing powder. Then I placed the pieces in the freezer for a bit to ensure some sharp cracks. After cracking the pieces I rubbed ink into the cracks. Each piece is layered on colored vellum that has been torn along the bottom edge. Memories, Treasure and Timeless are from a huge set of words by Yvonne Albrighton and are stamped on twill ribbon. The large leaf is by Judikins and the nature verse is by Serendipity.
