This is my first RIW card AND my first try at Cracked Glass. I was going for the "distressed" look and it definitely looks worn out. I crumbled the marigold morning paper and used aged copper to give it that antiquey feel. I sponged my image both before and after embossing with creamy caramel. The creamy caramel went nicely into the "cracks" to make it look more aged. I think next time I need to add an extra layer of glassy glaze before I put it in the freezer. But hey- it was my first try so you learn as you go!
Thanks for looking!!
