Papertrey Ink Make it Monday - 2nd Cracked glass card

I decided to try another card using the Cracked Glass technique.  In my previous post, I made a card using this technique that had a very modern feel to it and that was clean and simple - my usual style.  For this card, I decided to go WAY out of my comfort zone and try the vintage/shabby chic style.  I've never been able to pull off this style before to my satisfaction.  I really like how this card turned out.  It's very different from anything I've ever made before.

I started out with the Delightful Dahlia image that I die cut and stamped and then colored with the Hibiscus Burst Copic trio.  I antiqued it with the Tea dye inks and then coated it with UTEE and cracked it.  I highlighted the cracks with Raspberry Fizz ink.  

The leaves are Simply Chartreuse felt cut with the Leaf Print and Sending You leaf dies and the Parisian Lace die cut doily was inked with Hibiscus burst ink.
