Cracked glass technique

This is a fun technique where you stamp an image & then apply layers of clear embossing powder (4-5 works best) freeze for 15 minutes & then crack. Sponge in the cracks to emphasise them & viola:


This is the card my upline Jacque taught us the other night & had a few techniques extra on board as well - a bit of popping pastels, we've used the Signo white gel pen to make the flowers pop - but it was fun & I'm going to use it for a Sympathy card as it's a bit somber to me. The stamp set used is Upsy Daisy.

Yes agree with Debbie about the white gel pen which I must start using again - it does look good. Agree with you though Karen, the card although lovely is a bit somber.
