Pretty Fall Greeting

I want to thank everyone for stopping by on the Angel's Landing Blog hop last week! I greatly appreciate all your sweet comments! The winner of my blog candy was Patricia St. Martin! Now on to this week's fun!
I haven't done the cracked glass technique before, but this dp was just begging me to! I used one of the new releases "Autumn Tweetings" from Angel's Landing. I love creating with those gorgeous birds! The soft yellow background is Prismacolor pencil blended with OMS. I colored the rest of the image with Copic's. To get the cool cracked look I embossed it several times with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)...just a thick clear embossing powder. When thick enough I put it in the fridge to get really cold. I took it from the fridge and then crack it as desired. I sprayed and sponged distress ink over top to get into the little cracks and make it look really old. Fun technique, but a bit messy! This card follows the Angel's Landing 4 way sketch for this week. Hop on over to the Angel's Landing Blog and see what the rest of the designers came up with! I'm sure you won't be sorry!

  5. The cracked glass goes so well with the DP you chose. Nice idea to make the background a soft yellow rather than the white of the paper. It looks aged, which is perfect for this technique.
