Cracked Glass collage

I love techniques!  This project has a few.  I started off with coffee paper, one of my favorite things to do when I forget to turn off the coffee pot in the morning.  I then stamped this vintage image from SweetStamps and colored it with the Penciled Marker technique.  I Then applied a ton of clear embossing powder for the Cracked Glass technique.
Tissue tape, a french book page, old tickets and diecut flowers, a doily, a charm, all kinds of stuff made it onto this 4 by 4 collage that I made for my altered designs yahoogroup.  

Challenges:
SweetStamps - cracked glass technique
Delightful Challenges - add hearts
Frilly and Funkie - follow your muse
Quirky Crafts - something new (the stamp is new) + pink

Oh wow Juliet! You followed your coffee pot as well as your muse!!! Love the idea of turning a negative into a positive this way - the background you created is stunning. So much to see here and another of those I'd love to see irl. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie this time. Hugs, Jenny x

Oh Juliet, I am loving this!! Love the idea of stamping on coffee paper. I have never tried it before, but I think I will have too. The aged look that it gives the images, along with the cracked glass technique is just fabulous!! Wow, that you so much for joining SweetStamps in our monthly challenge and we look forward to seeing again.

Big Hugs,
Calyspo
