Cracked Glass Tilda

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

I had this stamped image colored with prsima pencils and was not completely thrilled with the look.  After doing some research on YouTube, I found a cracked glass technique.  Basically, you put embossing ink over the image and then emboss with clear embossing powder.  After you heat the first layer, you add more embossing powder.  Then repeat a few more times.  After you are satisfied with the look, you put in it the freezer, yes, I said freezer, for about 10 minutes.  Once you remove the image, you twist it to crack it and give it a scratched glass look.

Next I went over it with distressed ink to give it a antique feel.  I felt with the image, I need to mess up the background paper a bit, so I crumpled it all up and added distress ink to make it look older.  Overall, I am happy with the results.  I may have to give it another try.

Thanks for looking!
