A Simple...Hi!

Greetings YNS fans!!  Today is a brandie new challenge over at the YNS Challenge blog and the YNS SCS forum.  This week's challenge is always a favorite - Anything Goes!  I've used a newly released YNS stamp Jam Jar Globe in combination with the darling flower stamp from Seasonal Icons Set Two.

I started with my jam jar stamp inking it up with SU! Basic Black ink.  I then took the Seasonal Icons stamp and inked it with Momento right into the center of the jam jar.  I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure perfect placement.  I colored my image with my Copics.  I then coated the jar with Versamark and added four layers of clear embossing powder.  I used regular embossing powder as I wanted to crack the layers (just bending the paper back and forth a bit after it's dry) but wanted the cracks to be thin.  If I'd used UTEE I would have achieved a much more dramatic cracking and that's not quite the look I was going for. 
My card base is Hero Hues layering papers and the DP is all scrap that was on my desk.  I used some delicious chocolate stitched ribbon in combination with some American Crafts Thickers for my 'hi' sentiment.  I anchored my corners with some mini silver brads and kept this very CAS.
I can't wait to see what you come up with and I do so hope you join for this fun YNS Challenge!!

Crafty Hugs!
