Cracked Glass Mittens

Hi! I feel like it's been forever since I posted! Not that long, I know....I am way behind on doing some of the challenges that I like to participate in - this one is for last weeks Viva la Verve sketch with a twist. The twist this time was to use the cracked glass technique. I thought I had my card all finished and ready to post last night and then I realized I forgot the cracked glass part so I had to take it apart and add that! I used a digi image that Verve offered free for a bit. I drew a pattern onto the mittens because I also knit and I LOVE a patterned mitten (I am adding a couple of pictures of mittens I have knit, after the card!)

The Details:
Stamp: Winter Mittens digi - Verve
Paper: Imaginisce, Real Red, Chocolate Chip - SU, PTI White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Copics: R35,R37,R39,YG03,YG25,YG17,C0,C1
Misc: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Ultra Thick Embossing Powder, Oval and Oval Scallop Nestabilities, Sakura White gel pen, JoAnn Craft Essentials Ribbon

This is the first pair of mittens I made and I still wear them:

This is my favorite pair that I made:

Thanks for visiting me today!

Cool effect from the cracked glass technique, I've never tried it!
And those mittens are total works of art! I couldn't wear them for fear of getting them dirty!

Seriously Traci!?!? You made these mittens?!?! They're gorgeous!! I'm sooooo impressed! The most I've done with knitting is making a felt bag or two. I had to make a choice - card making/coloring or knitting...guess which hobby won?? LOL
