a first!-Just Magnolia week 71 Special Monthly Challenge+Sir Stampalot challenge+Fab n Funky Challenge+ Stampin for the Weekend

Good morning everyone and its the first Friday of the month so that means its a Just Magnolia Special monthly challenge and this month is a first for me, the Cracked Glass technique I have never tried this before but I got kinda addicted to the cracking and went way overboard I think lol...for those of you who haven't tried this before have a go what a brill technique it is and if your not sure how to do it here's a link for a great tutorial
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/cracked_glass/
but if you really dont want to try this technique you can do the Anything Goes option which from now on our Monthly challenge will be...I used this stunning couple I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, its from the Wedding 2010 collection and is called Loving Bridal Couple, I coloured them with Distress inks which I thought might run when I did the cracked glass but it didn't at all...the amazing paper is from the Basicgrey Granola collection and is called Sunflower, I cut some of the large flowers out and layered them up to give a bit of dimension and added some of my fav lush cream satin ribbon made into a bow and scrunched up, Im entering this for the All Distressed challenge at Sir Stampalot, Stampin for the Weekend Shabby or Vintage challenge and the Fab n Funky material challenge...I hope you like it and will give the challenge a go either the Cracked Glass or Anything Goes option and when you have the time hop on over to see the amazing creations from the rest of our DT...have a fantastically happy day everyone
