The CCEE'ers Are All Cracked Up
Vicky, as our August hostess, has completed the monthly CCEE Stampers Challenges with a technique challenge. We were to use the cracked glass technique on our cards. Now, I must admit that cracked glass seems to be a technique that I have mixed results with. Sometimes it works perfectly and other times (like today) it is very challenging. I actually think the weather has something to do with it....the humidity is very high today, and despite doing 4 layers of Utee (thick embossing powder) I had to work at getting any cracks in my cracked glass. Then, because the cracks were very fine, they did not really take the distress 'soot' ink I tried to use to make them stand out. Oh well......it really is a fabulous technique and I do love the results when the cracking really shows.

Now be sure to go to the CCEE Stamper's Blog to check out my fellow 'cracked' stampers.
