Lovely Tree Thanksgiving

I created this card a while ago when a new customer said she would love to learn the cracked glass technique. I remembered that I hadn't shared it here as I was getting it ready to mail off to my Dad. This card also works for this weeks challenge at Stamp Something.

The oak leaf image comes from one of my all time favorite stamp sets - Lovely As A Tree. I watercolored the image and then used Glassy Glaze embossing powder over the top to create the cracked glass technique. I describe how to do this fun technique in another post found here. After I cracked the image I also sponged on some Creamy Caramel ink using re-inker and a stampin' sponge so that it would really highlight the cracks. After I got the look I desired, I wiped the image with a paper towel to remove the extra ink.
