Technique: Cracked Glass

Artwork by Nina Perrin

Technique: Cracked Glass

(Shared with me by Sundi Hendrix)

Supplies Needed:
Clear Embossing Powder (I recommend UTEE)
Versa Mark Stamp Pad
Stamp Set
Craft Heater
Step One
Stamp the image you wish onto your cardstock
Step Two
Cover the entire piece of Cardstock with the Versa Mark Ink, Cover with UTEE and heat set
Step Three
Cover entire piece of cardstock with a second layer of Versa Mark Ink and UTEE and heat set until there are no dimples in the embossing powder.
Step Four
Place project into the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes
Step Five
Remove project from refrigerator and gently bend the cardstock. The UTEE will crack in the places you bend the paper.
Ink the front of the cardstock with distressing ink to give it an antique look and show off the cracks more clearly.
