Make It Monday #17: Cracked Glass Technique

I have used this technique one other time when I was taking a class at a local stamping store called  Stamp a dee do da in Milwaukie, Oregon.  (Yes, that is with an ie at the end, not ee from Wisconsin!!)  So I just happened to have a 50% off coupon and decided I would buy that large bottle of Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel from Michael's.  It took a few tries, but I am fairly happy with the results. 

I stamped with Year of Flowers:  Violets...twice so that I could cut out a portion of the violet.  I colored it in using some copics and then I embossed...three times just as Heather suggests in her video.  I used a circle nestabilities and stamped the larger of the two violets on that...my background paper was stamped with the Background Basics:  Twinkle.  I used other PTI designer paper and the birthday sentiment is from Blooming Button Bits.  I added three pearls, but I colored them with my copics to match the color scheme.


Here is a side view...a little closer up so you can see the cracked glass effect.  I rubbed on some PTI Chamomile ink into the cracks and then wiped it off.  Thanks for taking a look...and I think I will use this technique again...and I might even do it with just embossing one time and leaving it...it sure is pretty and shiny like glass when done just once!
