The main accent on my card is a sailboat stamped with one of my new Martha Stewart stamps. I competely coated the image with the Aleene’s® Paper Glaze after I cut it out giving it an epoxy look. That was then added to the front of the card with foam tape for added dimension.
Since I am already on the theme of "BABIES", I wanted to show off another card with that theme. This is actually using Sketch #40 from CPS. The stamps are by Crafty Secrets and I loved the vintage look of the stamps and the papers.
For my main focus piece, I painted a piece of chipboard with a dark paint and then painted Ranger's Crackle paint over that. When the paint dried and cracked, you can then see the dark undercolor through the cracks.
I stamped the baby buggy on a piece of plain white cardstock and then coated that with Ranger's clear Crackle Accents. This cracks as it dries. I inked this piece with a dark brown stamp pad so that the edges were inked and some of that ink with into my cracks so help show them off.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
