Susana recently got in some gorgeous collage stamps from I Brake For Stamps. They are such gorgeous stamps but I'm not going to lie, they intimidate me. I know they shouldn't but they do.
Figure there's no way to get over that intimidation except by diving in and trying one out. Of course I had to have the Butterfly and Berries Collage. If I conquer it then I'm definitely ordering the Butterfly Collage set of 3 stamps.
I stamped my image with VersaFine Onyx Black and then let my image sit for a few days. Next I colored it with copics...I know I didn't color it exactly perfect but not too shabby for a first attempt.
It just seemed to cry for something more so I tried the cracked glass technique on it. (You can find a tutorial on it-here). I've tried this technique in the past and been unhappy with the results but I liked how this turned out. I wiped some brown ink over it when I was done with the embossing to try and emphasize the cracks more.
I had a hard time photographing this card, so even though you can't see the "cracked glass" it really is there, promise! You can sort of see the cracks in the first photo.
