I watched a video on Stamp TV by Gina K on how to make an image appear as if behind cracked glass. This inspired me to give it a try.

I don't have Ultra thick embossing power so I made due with what I had, which is deep impression embossing powder. I need to coat the image 3 times to get it think enough. I am currently in love with my Versamark Dazzle so I though I would use that instead of regular Versamark.

The first image does not really show the glossy glass like effect but it does show the cracks.

This image where I used the flash , does show all the extra little sparkes that show up by using the Versamark Dazzle. I guess this does take a little away from the vintage look with all those sparkles but I don't care.

Take a look at Stamp TV for all sorts of interesting ideas.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer paper - My Mind's Eye - Life Stories, Great Impressions- Berry Branch, Spellbinders Nestabilites, Stamp Stuff - Deep Impressions Embossing powder, misc twine, misc Sisters's buttons.


  1. Truly, this card FEELS as neat as it looks. I'll be trying some modge podge to attempt the effect - think this might work?

    I love you're including links for resources - it gives me fresh inspiration.
