ABC Challenge Tutorial Blog - Cracked Glass Effect......

Hello Peeps!
I decided to have a go at the first tutorial on the new monthly blog challenge created here by the ABC team. There's a fab instruction for you to follow and the effect is really nice..... I don't have a heat gun so I used some of the Crackle Effects gloss to create something similar.

My image is from the wonderful blog Shabby Chic PapirSkitter and if you haven't seen these images before then hop over for a look, especially if you like the vintage style. Papers are Kay&Co which were lovely to use as they've sadly sat gathering dust for a while now...... which is due to the fact that I have an enormous collection of papers and not enough time to use them all!!!

Sorry to be short and sweet but wishing you all a happy day today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx

Your card is just breathtaking, such a gorgeous image and it looks stunning with the crackle effect on it. Gorgeous papers and flowers and I love those berries and all the other details you have added.
