Cracked Class Technique

This is a great technique! If you haven't tried it you definitely should. I stamped the Upsy Daisy image from Stampin' Up! on whisper white paper. You have to use Ultra Thick Embossing Powder by UTEE. After you stamp your image, apply Versamark over the entire image. Cover with the embossing powder and heat with the heat gun. It will be bumpy. Once the image is cool, cover it with Versamark and repeat. You will do this once more for a total of three times. By the third time you emboss the image will be much smoother. Pop the image in the freezer for about 5 minutes. When you pull the image out of the freezer, bend the image various ways for it to crack. It's a pretty easy technique that gives great results. If you want a more aged look, sponge ink into the cracks. I hope you get the chance to try this and let me know what you think.
