new favourite card

This is a card that I made using a few techniques that I love. The background is distressed with dutch blue and chocolate. I stamped En Francais (SU) in black. The stamp is from Summer By the Sea (SU) which is one of my favourite stamp sets. It is perfect for so many occassions. I used a blender pen for the colours, distressed the edges with a razor then inked them. This was the first time I have tried the cracked glass technique. It is really fun - The only thig I recommend is using the Ultra thick embossing powder. I used regular embossing powder and it worked, but would have been much easier with the thicker powder.

Let me know what you think.....
