Be Inspired with Cracked Glass


Good morning!  Today the Cuttlebug Challenge Team is all about the Cracked Glass Technique!  If you've never tried this or it's been a while, let us inspire you to have some fun!  I really love the antique, vintage look this technique can give to a project.  And it's so easy!  All you need is a glue pad of some sort, like Versamark, clear embossing powder, a heat tool, and a freezer!  After you have your image colored and ready to go, just smoosh your glue pad over the whole thing, add embossing powder over the whole thing and heat it up until it melts.  Do this again and again for as many layers as you want.  I did five layers.  Then go put it in the freezer for about five minutes or so!  When you take it out, immediately start bending the paper back and forth to get the cracks to show.  Remember to do this as soon as you take it out of the freezer because if you wait until you get back to your crafting area, it won't work.  Ask me how I know this!  LOL!  Once you have the cracks the way you want them, then you can sponge ink into those cracks to give it that aged look!  See how easy that is!  Now go try it, it's fun!!!  Here are the supplies I used for this card:

Neenah White, Mellow Moss, Archivers Brown card stocks
K&Co designer paper
Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder
Cuttlebug Vintage corners and Floral Borders dies
Memento Brown and Mellow Moss ink
Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks
Copic markers
Ribbon and Bow Easy
Versamark, Clear embossing powder, and heat tool
