It’s summer, the neighbor kids have their baseballs out… but the good news is that Cracked Glass is a stamping technique, not a result of a stray home run hit 🙂
This card is one that we’re making this week at Stamp Club with Meg, and the technique is perfect for the style of the new Razzle Dazzle stamp set. I’ve been using this set a lot lately, mostly because I like saying “razzle dazzle”. Go ahead–say it out loud a few times… Fun, eh?
Cracked Glass Directions:
- Begin with a piece of cardstock cut to your finished size.
- Stamp image first, then coat the entire paper with Versamark Ink. Add Clear Embossing Powder or Glassy Glaze Embossing Powder and heat.
- Cool, then add Versamark again and another EP layer. Heat again.
- Use 4-5 total layers of Clear EP or 2 of Glassy Glaze.
- After heating all layers, place cardstock in the freezer for at least 10 minutes.
- Upon removing from the freezer, IMMEDIATELY bend the paper to add cracks. You can re-freeze and re-crack if desired.
- Wipe ink across surface and wipe off to add color to the cracks.
