The Old Truck Cracked!!!

My card today is one of the Technique Challenges that Gina K. offered up on Stamp TV. Every week Gina does a video to show new techniques, step by step. She then puts the challenge up for everyone to try and this is one I hadn't done in a very long time. This technique is "Cracked Glass". I won't give you the details because Gina has already done that for you. Just head over to StampTV and click on the Video tab then there is a video0 for the "Cracked Glass" technique. I used Theresa Momber's set, "Timeless Treasures" to stamp the "old keys" as a background on my "Moonlit Fog" Pure Luxury Heavy Base weight cardstock. My "BlackOnxy" cardstock was distressed before applying it to the base. For my cracked glass image I used Asela Hopkins truck from "The Journey". I did color the headlights and the wooden racks in the back of the truck just for a splash of color. One other thing I did to my cracked glass was to take my Momento Dew Drop, London Fog, ink pad and rubbed it all over the cracks once I had finished. The I used a paper towel to wipe off the excess ink. This leaves it looking a little more antiqued as the ink sinks down into the cracks. A quick little bow and sentiment and my card is done!! If you like the look of this technique, head to over to Stamp TV every Wednesday. Gina puts a new one up every week and offers a challenge up afterwards for a chance at a free stamp set valued at $24.95 or less from Gina K Designs!! Why not give it a try. Have a great day!! *smile* Signature
