TSG22 Spooky Cracked Glass

OK 2nd time is the charm!!! I don't normally go out of my comfort zone and try many new techniques, even though my best pal Jodi is always trying to get me too, so attempting and completing this was a major for me.

The Spooky Cracked Glass technique is for this weeks There She Goes Challenge TSG22

I kept the layout fairly simple so as to not take away from the main piece. I also remembered to go with a spooky look!!

I stamped my "Happy Halloween" sentiment, which is by Inkadinkado, right onto the Creepy Crawly DP from Stamping Up. I ran out of the sugared coated brads so I made my own by taking plain black brads, dipping them in Stamping Up heat and stick powder, heating them with the embossing gun, then dipping them in Stamping Up Dazzling Diamonds and re-heating with embossing gun. I love them!

Ok now the cracked glass. First I stamped my Jack-o-lantern onto a Label 9 Nesstie (Jodi gave me a handful of samples- your a doll BFF!) Then I stamped my the eniter thing with my Versa Mark Pad and clear embossed it. I repeated this step 4 more times totally 5 layers of clear embossing! Then I put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes took it out and cracked. I actually had to keep putting back in the freezer to get cracks, I think the warmth of my hands was heating it up. After I reached cracked capacity I sponged some Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip and then wiped with a paper towel. I am so happy with how it came out and I had a blast with this technique, it is really so simple but the possibilities are endless!!
