Thomas Kinkade

I needed a sympathy card and really liked this Thomas Kinkade stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. I used the cracked glass technique on it and the colouring was just using chalks. It's turned out better than I thought it would.Thanks for looking.
Edited to add: Sorry for the crooked photo. I took it Sunday night after a huge day. I stamped the image with Sepia Versafine ink, dabbed some colour on with SU chalks then clear embossed the image a few times. In the freezer for a bit, cracked it one way, back in, cracked it the other way and rubbed some ink in the cracks.

I like this Leigh
I like Thomas Kinkades work he uses the full spectrum of colour and his use of light makes his paintings glow.
I am surprised to see that thhis is a rubber stamp as I didnt know there were any available of his work.
you coloured it beautifully and I like the crackle glaze on top....well done ;o)
