Sugar Bowl Extra Challenge

Hi everyone, well here is my entry into the March challenge over on Sugar Bowl Extra. The technique to use this month is cracked glass, basically emboss your image 3 times with clear embossing powder, freeze for about half an hour, remove from freeze then break to form the "cracks". As you can expect my daughter thought I had lost all sense when she seen me putting this image into the freezer, needless to say she enjoyed it when she broke it all for me.

As I don't have any distress ink pads, I used my colour box chalk and inked the edges before embossing, then after cracking the image used a cotton ball and gently rubbed some more chalk into the cracks to emphasis them slightly, this seemed to have the same aging effect that I was after.

Materials Used:
Image - Sweet & Sassy by Elisabeth Bell
Colours - Copic sketch markers
Ink - Colour box chalk yellow
Embossing Folder - D'vine Swirl by Cuttlebug
Papers - DCWV Text Stack
Ribbons - American Crafts
Flowers - Prima
Everything else from my ever growing stash!!!!
