Cracked Glass

This is not the greatest picture but if you could see it clearer the blue floral area looks like a ceramic tile. I used the cracked glass technique for these little 3 x 3's. I used my Floral background stamp in Basic Blue ink on white cardstock. I then cut that image into 2 x 2 squares. Next you need to cover your image with VersaMark ink and then clear embossing powder and heat. Repeat the last step 2 or 3 more times. The layers of EP build up to resemble glazing on a tile. When you have your last layer done, immediately put your image(s) into the freezer for a few minutes. When you take them out, bend the paper to crack the glazing be careful not to bend too much or the glazing will separate from the paper. It really is prettier in person.
