Season of "Woodsy" Joy

This card reminds me of the woods. I'm assuming it's the colors I used, non-traditional Christmas colors.
I've been wanting to try the "Cracked Glass Technique" and I can't believe how easy it was. I used Glassy Glaze Enamel for the embossing. I took the image, inked with VersaMark, added the glassy glaze enamel, and heated. I did this 3 times, waiting 3 - 5 minutes in between each layer. After I was finished embossing the paper was curled up quite a bit. I put it in the freezer for 3 minutes then took it out and bent it in several directions until I got the amount of cracking that I wanted. Once I cracked the image it laid flat then. I love the way it turned out. TFL!!

Fabulous card Pam - love the cracked glass effect and the colours and images all work together to create something really stunning! Love it and I may try to make one for myself as I've yet to try this technique.
Thanks for sharing.
