This Impression Obsession Peacock Tiles image was colored with Tsukineko Memento Markers and heavily embossed with ultra thick clear embossing powder to achieve the cracked glass technique. (For this technique, apply your Tsukineko Versamark pad directly to the image and then coat it with ultra thick clear embossing powder or regular clear embossing powder. Heat your powder until it melts and repeat several times until you are pleased with the amount of coverage. Then pop your project into the freezer for a minute or so. Remove your project from the freezer and bend/twist the image to create fine cracks. Sponge your favorite Memento ink over the image to highlight the fine cracks you've created with either a sponge dauber or an Ink Blusher. Wipe the image with a clean cloth to remove excess ink and voila! Cracked glass!
The dry embossed card base was created with a Sizzix Embossing folder using a shimmer card stock such as Stardream or Curious Metallics and the fabulous and affordable embellishments are from Mark Richards.

2) As I was putting my pieces together, I decided I wanted to use one of my favorite Edgabilities® so I taped together Classic Decorative Inserts Two with Classic Edges One and cut/embossed them.
3) Using a 1.5 inch piece of scor-tape, I adhered it to the Romantic Rectangle die cut and added glitter. This is very sticky tape so I knew it would stay in place. Then I trimmed down my Edgabilities die cut so that it would fit directly over the chunky glitter and adhered it into place. This added some contrast even though the card is still all white. (That was my hubbies idea...he is brilliant!) After that, I simply adhered the rectangle on to the card base.
4) I added a stamped sentiment to the Fancy Tags Two that I had already cut out and used some gorgeous Want2Scrap to frame. Using foam squares, I adhered it on the card front and added some trim to the seam.
