This months theme is embossing. I decided to do the cracked glass technique with clear embossing powder. I stamped the image from the Our Craft Lounge Let Freedom Ring stamp set on the cardstock, colored it with my Copic markers. Then I took my VersaMark pad and covered the entire image with the ink. I poyred on the embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool, then I repeated that to make it super thick. I put the piece in the freezer to harden for a few minutes and then I took it out and bent it several times so the ep would crack. It looks so vintage, I love this technique!

There is so much I love about this - I would write a book if I tried to name everything! This is one of my favorite techniques and I love the way you've featured it. Fantastic card!
