That's 19 chances to win! All winners will be announced on the Tiffany Doodles blog Wednesday January 18th.

You should have arrived from Donna's fabulous and inspirational blog,  If this is your first stop, please go back to Jessica's blog so you don't miss anything!


My first card is made using "Dahlia with Oval"image, I have printed the image cut it out and then coloured with distress inks.  Next I stamped with versamark and coated in embossing enamel then heated and repeated the process three times.  After the image was dry I cracked the enamel to give this cracked cameo effect.






































My second card is using the second image from the same set, I have printed the flowers onto some BasicGrey Paper and then coloured with TomBow markers.























The image I have used for both my cards is "Dahlia with Oval" A very versatile and pretty image.

I hope you're feeling inspired! Before you hop over to Anette's Blog remember to leave a comment for your chance to win!

oh, I haven't done cracked glass in a long time! Yours looks simply amazing! And I love the multi-inked background, and the lovely ribbon.
And for the flowers in the vase, I love the scalloped edges, and the way you've added the extra strips with pearls...perfect balance, and a really cheerful thank you!
