So excited to squeeze in one more challenge, before leaving on my trip to the Midwest. Trish challenged us to create a page using one of the cracked glass techniques. See her blog for details.
With Easter coming up, I wanted to do an Easter page, and I thought the cracked glass technique would be great with this stamp:
I was concerned that the fine details of the image would be lost under the UTEE (ultrathick embossing powder) and cracks, so I colored it in and darkened the edges:
I used an embossing ink pad and 3 layers of UTEE (heating after each layer):
Then let it cool:
I bent the image to make breaks in the UTEE and dropped a dark distress reinker over the cracks and rubbed it in with my finger, (then wiped off the excess with a tissue):
I wanted more cracks, but not as dark. I bent the image some more and ran a lighter shade of distress ink over the image:
Here is my finished page:
Wishing everyone a Blessed Easter!
