Wise Men Still Seek Him

Hello, Julie here to share another card with the new We Three Kings from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.

This card was created using the Splitcoaststampers F4A284 “Everything Old is New Again” using the Cracked Glass Technique (this technique seemed to be popular years ago and I thought that the We Three Kings image would be perfect to give it a try) :-) !

To create the Cracked Glass Panel- stamp the We Three Kings wisemen image using a Dark Navy ink (allow the ink to dry), trim the panel and apply Versamark™ ink over the entire piece.

While the Versamark™  ink is still wet, apply a thick clear embossing powder  over the panel ( I used an old container of Glassy Glaze I had on hand, heat set with the Heat Tool, allow the thick embossing powder to dry and repeat the steps (re-inking with Versamark™ , applying the embossing powder and heating)- I applied a total of three coats of the embossing powder.

Place the embossed panel in the freezer to cool and then you can gently “crack” the embossing when you twist the paper (be careful not to twist it or "scrunch" too hard).

Finish by mounting onto cardstock and adding your embellishments.

To me the cracked glass panel looks like something antique that you might find in your grandmother’s attic- a vintage style for sure :-)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!!
