HDH053 - Pink on the Brink

How's it going blog land? It looks like it's going to be a beautiful kind of day here....The sun is shining and it's even cool outside...I hope your day is as pretty as ours is here.....I have a card I'd like to share that I made for Haunted Design House's Pink challenge this week. This was alot of fun to make....I got out my UTTEE to play with and made the cracked glass effect on the stamped circle....if I remember, there's 6 layers of uttee and then I popped it into the refrigerator. But you know what I hate, is that every time I play with this and use an image with a face, no matter how hard I try not to crack the face, walla--it cracks.....ARGH!!!! ........ENJOY!!!!!!!!
here I used the Tim Holtz technique using distress ink pad (worn lipstick) and water for the pink.....I cut up a Manila folder to make my card....I also used distress black soot crackle paint for the black, added some Vaseline to remove some of it in spots to show the branches I stamped underneath.....but stupid me, you know I'm a dork right, well I dried the paint using my heat gun before I removed the paint from those sections and it ended up a mess. You really can't see the branches to much....oh well, I still kind of like how it turned out....I also used some Holtz filmstrip, removed some windows and hung some chandelier glass from it at the bottom....
closer view of the cracked glass effect........I made a second stamp of the little girl (paper artsy--ancestors--plate #2) and cut the wings out and popped them up (on top of the uttee) like they are crashing through the glass.....
here's the top of the tag with more filmstrip and glass that I used to thread the button with....well that's it for today....I hope everyone has an awesome and sunny kind of day today.......hugs from Charm City........
