CHOCOLATE BAROQUE AT FYI ....

Hi there my lovelies!  Many thanks for popping by, and a warm welcome to my new followers.   I hope you are all having a happy week. 
********
It's time for another challenge at FYI   and here is this week's amazing inspiration photo ~
For my DT card I have taken the blue sky, green grass and the white building  as my inspiration - OK I know my choice of blue is not the same as the pic - but hey - we can interpret the photo in any way we wish!
So here it is, and I hope you like it ~ (the detail is clearer when you click the pic.)
Recipe:-

The blue panel is Basic Grey Granola - a very old snippet which was lurking about in my paper stash, distressed around edges with scissors.
The gorgeous flower and grasses are from the Chocolate Baroque Fantasy Meadow set -  
the flower was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink then painted with Distress Inks - Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint.
The grasses were randomly stamped, and second-stamped, with Peeled Paint.
Edges of the oval softly inked with Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans.
********* 
The Ornate Frame die is from Sizzix . The white frame was stamped with the Indigo Blu Crackleglaze background stamp, using clear Versamark ink which was brushed over with Pewter Perfect Pearls to reveal the "crackles".
Machine stitching,  and a sentiment from Hero Arts.
**************
Hope you will join in the fun at FYI ~ you have two weeks to create your project!
Love and hugs ~

Morning Sylvia

This is a fabulous card.... I love everything about it... but particularly that crackleglaze background stamp on the frame... Makes it look like a proper frame!

Hope it's not as wet near you as it is here today.... but think it may be as you're only a few miles away.
Ah well.... crafting time...

Hugs

How fabulous Sylvia. The stamped image is gorgeous and beautifully coloured and I was wondering how you got that lovely effect on the frame so thanks for explaining that. I have a crackle stamp - wanted for ages but never used since I got it (typical) so I'm going to have a go at that.
