Slightly cracked and a little blue

I haven't participated in Dutch Dare Challenges recently, but I couldn't pass up the current one: Use the Cracked Glass technique. You know how I love a new technique...and heating four layers of embossing powder is my idea of a good time! It was really really fun.

The color inspiration is from the iCopic Monochromatic Challenge, but I'm not entering it into the challenge because I didn't really color with copics. I did, however, use copics for all the coloring. Boy are those great markers! I stamped the images in Baja Breeze Memento ink (both from Stampendous) on letterpress paper, then used BG10 liquid for the background and B00, B000, B32 & BG15 for details.

I made the card and frames in SCAL, did a little light distressing with sandpaper (after the paper was cut but was still on the mat), and voilĂ .
