Stamping TV - Cracked Glass Technique




I watched Gina K demonstrate this technique a few weeks back. I decided to duplicate the technique for a card going to a friend dealing with chemo. I loved her design so much I used the same stamp she featured. The stamp is from Gina K's autumn collection. The card I created is a little different! By no means is it as lovely as hers but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. Hope you are having a great week!

Materials List

Stamps - Pumpkins - Gina K
Sentiment - unknown
