Cracked Glass technique

Hi everyone! Here is a card I made for a challenge swap group I am in. We were to use a technique we hadn't tried before as well as a sketch. The sketch was from Spitcoaststampers, SC195.

I inked the Asian vase with azure stazon and cut out. Then I applied versamark and UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel). I did that 3 times and put the vase in the freezer for a few minutes. Remove the vase and bend to crack while it is still cold. I applied close to cocoa over the cracked image and wiped off. This leaves a subtle aged look to the cracks.

The paper I used is SU dsp Green Tea and Pacific Point cardstock.

Thanks for looking. Hope you are having a happy day! :)
