Embossing Powder Techniques #8

Cracked Glass

This technique adds a vintage look to paper crafts.

I used the Big Shot to cut a 3 in. circle of Vanilla card stock and stamped Bella Toile background with Crumb Cake ink. The clock face from Sense of Time set was stamped with Basic Black ink.

To define the circle I sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edge and followed with a narrow application of Basic Black ink.

For the smaller circle on the face, I punched a 1 in. circle from scrap card stock, placed the hole over the circle and sponged Crumb Cake ink.

Let all the inks dry and apply a VersaMark pad to the clock face. Pour on Clear Embossing Powder and shake off the excess. Heat with heat tool and repeat the layers of VersaMark and EP until there are 3 layers. (If you're quick, you can just add EP to the still hot surface and skip the VersaMark.)

Now place the piece in the freezer for 10 minutes. Take it out and bend it to make the Embossing crack. I swiped the surface with a Crumb Cake ink pad to make the cracks show up better.

After stamping the sentiment with Basic Black ink, I folded the Vanilla card stock mat twice, then laid it flat and swiped it with a Crumb Cake ink pad. I also swiped the Framed Tulips embossed border with the same ink pad.
