Cracked Glass (craft technique, that is!)

Make It Count stamp set
Silhouette paper pack
Black, Bamboo, & Chocolate inks
black brads and photo hangers
Liquid Glass

Techniques: paper tearing, DTP, & cracked glass

The usual cracked glass instructions call for lots of embossing powder, but CTMH makes this technque even easier! Just cover your image with a thick coat of Liquid Glass. When it has dried (may even take all night), pop your image into the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Pull it out and start bending the paper. If cracks don't appear right away, pop it back in the freezer for another 5 minutes. If you'd like, rub a little distressing ink over the cracked piece like I did to make the cracks show up more. Wipe the piece with a tissue to remove excess ink. (For less mess, place your image on a piece of waxed paper before covering in Liquid Glass.)

And it was easy and worked really well. MUCH easier than using layers of embossing powder. Just plan for the drying time.
