marbled vase

A few weeks ago I was thumbing through a magazine and saw a card that instantly gave me some inspiration to create this....

The card in the magazine had the black bottom and a couple of different sized vases with flowers. I'm really loving what I came up with here. Yes, sometimes I do pat myself on the back, lol! Honestly, I'm not always in love with my's just "ok", but this one...yeah, I'm really fellin' it. The effect on the vase was a fluke...but a good one! I stamped, colored and fussy cut the vase, then filled it in with Crystal Lacquer.  The glaze gave my coloring a marbled look...pretty cool, hunh? After it dried, I kinda rolled / cupped it and glued it on. Basically I wanted it really puffed out and dimensional. For the lines (where the sentiment is written), I used 2 of the stamps from the basic borders cling set.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!


  1. I like it! The effect on the vase is cool. All that white space in the card could make some nervous but it really works, lots of great stuff happening below.

  2. Oh, girl, this IS a stunner! So classy! You've always done well with cute and fun cards, but I'm loving this uber sophisticated and elegant mode you've been in recently! GORGEOUS stuff!

  3. I agree--this is wonderful! So rewarding when something comes out great!
