Vintage Hippy Chick

I hope wherever you are that you have the glorious weather that we are having today - if not here is some sunshine and warmth for you..............catch it?  Enjoy!

My cad for today I am not entirely happy with - I tried out the cracked glass technique to the letter but something has not gone right I know.

I have followed the sketch for The Sugar Bowl and also the Autumn Theme, and also it fits in with The Sarah Hurley Vintage Theme too.

Hippy Chick rubber stamp from Funky Kits;
DPs from stash, distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and scissors;
PMs ~ Blush, Oatmeal, Pastel Pink, Dusky Pink, Vanilla, Sandstone, Caramel, Cinnamon, Shale, Spice, Coral, Honeycomb, Pumpkin and Peach;
UTEE and heat gun;
Flowers and twine from stash.

I know I am crap at taking the pics but I am so disappointed with the result - suppose it IS only my first attempt at this technique so will practice make perfect? - hope so! Doesn't help that I am feeling a bit low today despite getting a massive gift in the post from a very special buddy of mine- have pain in my kidney area but can't see doc for few days.  Not in any pain while passing water just back pain so drinking lots of water and cranberry juice to see if that helps ease it a bit.

Happy crafting folks :)X
