Hello, my dear crafting friends! Irit is here today with my Broken Glass technical tutorial made for our Tando Creative Music blog hop.
If you came from Caro 's blog - you are on a right way!
All you need to make this broken glass look is a big background stamp , clear embossing ink and a lot of Clear embossing powders.All you need to make this final project is Tando most gorgeous Music notes chipboard!
Pick your WOW Embossing Powders stamp. I picked Suzy West French Music Background stamp.
Stamp a background stamp with permanent ink. I used black Memento, but any permanent ink will do the job. Please, not any kind of pigmented ink as it will be a mess after the first heat embossing step.
Cover the entire stamped piece with Clear embossing ink and add a thick layer of Clear Gloss Ultra High embossing powder. Heat it and add 2-3 more layers of the same powder. Let it cool and add more clear ink all over. Now add a think layer of Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder and heat it again. Make it 2-3 more times with the fine powder. The fine powder should cover some spaces that are not totally flat in your Clear Gloss Ultra High powder embossing.
Put your embossed paper in your deep freezer and wait for half an hour.
Now take the frozen paper and break it all over as much as you can. The thicker your embossing is and the smaller is you paper piece, the better crackles will be shown. As my paper is pretty big (so was this Music stamp), I can see just some small crackles around.
Now add some light brown distress ink over the embossed paper and clean it with some wet cloth.
Now we can see the broken glass areas and our background piece is done.
Step 4: Make a final project using your glass background .The Music chipboard was inked with Black pigmented ink and then covered with Ultra High Black embossing powder.
This technique works perfect over any printed images too (not a newspaper ones as those are not permanent), but patterned paper, magazine cuts etc.
And one final tip: use a box when you do your massive embossing, so you can pick all your leftover powder. I didn't... I need to mop my craft room as it looks like a sandy beach.
