Chrissy's Belli challenge-cracked glass


This week's challenge is using cracked glass. I had only done this once before and it was in a class last Spring. Here is what I came up with. All materials are SU. except for the CM Silver Shimmer paper. After I cracked the 'glass' I sponged silver ink on the image and wiped it off, but decided not to apply it to the poinsettia. I'm not happy with the cracking lines but like the glossy finish. You can find Chrissy's challenge on her blog Creating with Chrissy
