Faux Cracked Glass Tutorial

Faux_cracked_glass_2 This is a new technique that I came up with for my presentation at convention and it's really easy to do!  It gives the look of cracked glass without having to use a freezer! 

Here is how you go about achieving this look:

  1. Stamp desired image on a piece of cardstock

  2. "Smoosh" versamark all over the cardstock.

  3. Pour Glassy Glaze Enamel over the cardstock and heat.

  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 so you have two layers of Glassy Glaze. 

  5. While the image is still hot, press a Weathered stamp that has been inked with dark ink (I used Close to Cocoa) into the Glassy Glaze.  Voila, it's as simple as that!
