Initial Technique

I found a new group on SCS. Craft Secrets has a weekly challenge. This week was to use your initials to select one or two techniques in the SCS Resources section and make a card. I selected D (distressed edges) and C (Cracked glass) for this card. The cracked glass techniques uses clear embossing powder, I used Crackle Accents. After the Crackle Accents dries, gentle bending the paper gives a vintage look. I sponged Vintage Photo over the cracks and over the distressed edges of the papers.

Stamps: none
Image: Crafty Secrets
Paper: Bo Bunny
Ink: Distress Ink: Vintage Photo
Accessories: Crackle Accents, Martha Stewart Holly punch, Stickles, and edge distresser.

  2. This is just gorgeous, Deb! I've gotta get "crackin'", too! (Sorry to be punny!) I haven't started my challenge card head's been sick & muddled and I haven't been able to stamp at all...maybe later today! Well done!

  3. Gorgeous card, Deb! These two techniques are perfect together to create a true vintage feel!!

    And why did I never think to use cracked glass on clip art? Thanks for helping me think outside the glass box!
