Tiddlyinks Challenge #23- Diamond Glaze/Crackle

This is my second post for today- please scroll down for my other post. When I first saw this image by Tiddlyinks called "Donna" (named after Donna Mikasa), I knew I had to get it. She's so cute! And I love her little frog friend with matching umbrella. Thanks Donna for requesting this image! Now we can all enjoy using it too. This week's Tiddlyinks Challenge is to use diamond glaze or Crackle on your project. Don't know if you can tell, but I used glaze on Donna's umbrella, raincoat and rubber boots. I guess glaze doesn't photograph well, so its hard to see on my photo. I also tried out this cool technique I found on Color Me Copic. It teaches you how to make a grassy background for your image. This was really fun and gave my card some life. I then added some distress ink for the sky using my blender and just dabbing the ink on. And for the inside of my card, I used this cute kids sentiment. I thought it matched the image perfectly! Supplies:
  • Donna image- Tiddlyinks

  • Scallop border punch- Fiskars
  • Daisy chain punch- EK success
