Hello there,
Today, I revisited the cracked Glass technique...mainly because as soon as I picked up the Landrover stamp, I thought this was the technique to do for the day. Sometimes it is a bit of a drama to get the card to crack and I believe it is because I live in the tropics and the humidity comes into play. I have discovered if I stand at the freezer with my hands inside and do what needs to be done quickly, then all is well and I get a good crack going. I don't do "male" cards too often and need to really bolster my stash of them. This is a good start, I think!
Thanks for looking. Remember to click on the image if you wish to see more detail.

This is one of those techniques that for some reason fascinates me, but I've never tried it. I know it's easy peasy (for those of us who DON'T live in the tropics, lol) but I just have never gotten around to it. Love the look & I think your card turned out great!

This came out great! What a wonderful technique and image for a guy card! I love how this turned out! My brother is always restoring old cars, so this would be a great card for him!
