My Grafico Challenge #78 - Winter Wreath

I especially loved the set we got to work with this week,
but I was so upset the card just did not turn out the way I wanted it to.
You can't tell at all in the pic that the image is completely covered in Crystal Effects,
and even worse, it wouldn't crack for me!!
Maybe I have forgotten how to do the 'cracked glass' effect??
I donno... but here it is just the same =)

I was even more disappointed that Crystal Effects makes printer ink bleed.
Trial and error I guess. However, it didn't bleed too badly, I am not even
sure you would have noticed unless I mentioned it, but we can't all
be perfect right? Then it's just not 'homemade' anymore!! lol

I did merge the 2 Digi Stamps together so the sentiment fit
perfectly in the beautiful wreath, which I was very pleased with.

I loved coloring this up with my SU markers... as I am STILL
waiting on my copics!! Grrrr!! I wish they would get here already
I am DYING to play with them!!

Here is the set we used by Cheryl Wenger

Come play with us in the MyGrafico Challenge this week!!
The Challenge is - ANYTHING GOES!!

Wow, you colored that with Stampin Up markers! What a great job! I only use those for velumn now! You will love your Copics when you get them. You will have to start getting refills! I stillhave to get about 30 more refills, and I have a little over the amount of markers that you ordered! I get them when I can from Oozak. Congrats on making the AiFactory team! They will love your designs as well all do!
