Sorry this pic is a bit blurred I am no good at close ups! You get the impression of the rock candy though it looks gorgeous like they are glistening.
The frame was gessoed - 2 coats, painted - 2 coats then a coat of rock candy crackle - you getting the picture of the long drying times??? I have added the frame to some really thick card to make it into a birthday card for Jacci (necklace post below too). They have all been stuck in the frame using silicone glue - whoops forgot the leaves - they are stamped with the build a rose DC leaf, inked and cut out and shaped and glued in like the flowers and ticket.
Im entering this into the creative card crew challenge which is April showers brings May flowers!
