TSG22 -- Cracked Glass
Jessica has posted another There She Goes challenge 22 (TSG22) for you to play! It is a technique challenge, called Cracked Glass. I used the great tutorial from Split Coasts Stampers to create my cracked glass mat.
When you finish your card/project, please enter your name and the link of your project to Mr. Linky on the challenge post over TSG blog. You have a chance to win $5 gift certificate to use at TSG Store. The challenge is open until the winner is announced on Monday, Oct 5th.
For my card, I used the brand new set, HSH Halloween Additions. I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C4). I stamped the sentiment & the crow on the mat and sponged really rusty & basic gray (SU!) over the entire surface. After heat embossing the mat for 3 times with Ultra Thick clear EP, I put the mat in the freezer about 10 min - the coating has to be hard to make cracks. Then I cracked the mat and sponged the cracks with rich cocoa (Memento). I think the cracks gave the extra punch to the card :) What do you think??
