My First Moo

There's a call from "Stampers' Sampler" for Moo cards, so I thought I'd give one a try and see what they are like and if I think I can make any that are worthy of sending in to potentially get published. Which is one of my crafting goals this year. So, here's my first attempt. I used stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, since it's the first one that I thought of when I saw really how tiny these are. Then I used the cracked glass technique on it. I don't think I'll do this technique again on something this small. Too hard to get it to really crack right. But I managed and here are the results. For size comparison I took a pic of it next to my bone folder. The size of a Moo card is 1" x 2-4/5". This was fun and I'll be creating more as time allows.
Stamps: "Pottery Garden" by Rubber Stamp Tapestry
