Cracked Glass ATC

Tonight I revisited a technique I discovered more than 7  or so years ago, a project just for fun.  Normally one would make more than one ATC at a time, but I wasn’t sure if I remembered it correctly.  It turned our as it should have.

I wanted a vintage, aged look so I chose the pretty flower from the “Jardin Paris” set.  It’s watercolored with pencils.  The sentiment (“Celebrate Tomorrow”) was just right for inspiring and addressing the tone of where I want to go with more ATC’s in the future.  The little bird is stamped on book print, a little watercolor added and pasted down.  I did some distressing with Ranger’s Vintage Photo and a stamp from “Beauty Wings”.  After the piece was properly cracked I rubbed the distress ink pad directly onto the ATC.  It must have been a bit much as some ink leaked in between the cracks so I used the heat tool underneath to dry it out before calling it done.  DSCN3588

Here is a shot of it before I put it into the freezer.  There are 4 layers of UTEE on the card.  It’s like magic.  First the melting of the embossing enamel each time, then the “cracking” once I took it out of the freezer.

This was a fun break today, to play with my crafty toys.  If you have any questions about the project or my daughter’s website, feel free to ask me.  I love to get comments, and love to share crafty times.

If you want any of these Fun Stampers Journey images or other product, please email my daughter at, she doesn’t pay for the site any longer but does order our supplies all the time.
