Crafty Creations

This week over at Crafty Creations we have a Christmas project with an optional cracked glass effect.
For those of you that haven't done it before - me included - it is done by putting several layers of clear embossing powder on top of your image- heating in between layers - leaving to cool and then bending image to crack the embossing - very effective!

My gatefold card uses DCWV papers to back - the lovely Sugar Nellie - Leanne Ellis image coloured with copics,Cutting Cafe string of baubles and sentiment printed on DCWV paper and coloured with Sakura.
I finnished it off with a doodled outline to match bauble string and two tiny pegs to hold on the string of baubles.

We have Regina Easter from the Cutting Cafe as the sponsor this week and the lucky winner can choose any 3 printable stamps - fabby!
Always worth a visit to see what the DT have been upto - we love to visit you and your Crafty Creations.

  10. wow this is fantastic Claire, I hope you and your family are well take care Maxine

  11. I love this, the colours are beautiful and the image is beautiful, well suited for the effect you've used. So, you layer powder over paper, heat set, then relayer, reheat several times and then bend it? Is it just powder or do you need to use embossing ink too? You must need the ink, the powder would blow everywhere if you did it w/o!! I must try this NOW :)
