Just playing around...

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday evening.  I was off today so I got a chance to play a little as well as continue to work on the stuff that I am doing for the Winter Wonderland craft sale next week.  I still have more I want to do, but I'm afraid that time isn't on my side.  So I'll just do what I can and hope for the best.

So I created this card using a sketch from ICSketches.  This worked perfectly with the image I chose to use.  I am also pulling up my bootstraps and working up my nerve to participate in challenge over at iCopic Lover.  I have always wanted to play along, but have never considered myself worthy.  I still don't, but at least I'm trying.

Please be honest, tell me what you think of my attempt at vintage.

I distressed everything!  I inked it all, I wrinkled, I scraped it... it's all on there.  I even tried the cracked glass technique and for the first time in my life... it worked!!  Here's a close up of the image.

You can't quite see the shine, but you can see the cracks.  I am soooo excited about this.  I do hope you enjoy my card.  Thanks for visting. Enjoy your night.
