CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop: Liquid Glass

Are you familiar with Liquid Glass? It is one of my favorite CTMH products! (OK, I say this about all my stuff, but really, liquid glass is something you HAVE to have!) Since I love it so much, I joined this liquid glass blog hop. We have about 10 stops on the way, so be sure to visit them all. You may have arrived from Carol's blog, so keep on hopping (link to the Kristie's blog at the bottom).

Not only does liquid glass let you add some shine and gloss to whatever you put it on, it is also the best adhesive I have ever used. It does dry to a high-gloss finish, so remember that if you don't want it to show on your project.

For my card, I used liquid glass to create the cracked glass technique. A lot of people use clear embossing powder, but I like to cover my image in a few thin layers of liquid glass (letting the layers dry after each application). Then, start bending and almost folding your image so that the liquid glass cracks. I finished this image off by rubbing a bit of Chocolate ink onto the cracked glass so that it seeped into the cracks. The ink wipes write off the clear face of the clock image. (Let me know if you have any questions, as I do not have a supply list handy at the moment. I did use the CTMH Silhouette paper pack and Make It Count stamp set.)

This card is especially meaningful to me right now because this passage was read at my uncle's funeral this weekend. No matter what your faith, these are such true words.

Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Kristie's blog!

I enjoyed this blog hop - and it was short enough that I hopped through all of them in one sitting! I was working with the pages we made with that clock accent, just this past week. I need to remember to use LG more often!
