Tuesday Morning Sketches #274

Good Morning, we have a new Tuesday Morning  Sketches Challenge for you, the sponsor this week Stitchy Bear and the sketch is created by Jessi. 

Ok, so I may be a little late with theme of this card but one of the perks of being a Design Team is being able to work ahead on challenges, one of the downfalls is to loose track of days on the calendar :).

I wanted to try the cracked glass technique for my card to make the image look like old faded mirror. I printed off the image and then heat embossed three layers of clear powder on to it. I popped it in the freezer and cracked it when it was cold enough. I then used a dauber to add some gray ink into the cracks. I layered the image to give it a slight framed look, and added some Halloween papers for the back drop. I finished with some twine, the sentiment and sequins.

The image is not that dark in real life but the gloss confused the camera a little.
Supplies: White and black card stock, Designer Paper – Jillibean Soup, Stitchy Bear-Silhouette Halloween Broom, twine, sequins.
Don’t forget to visit the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge blog to see all the great cards created by the rest of the design team.
Thank you for stopping by.
