There are some techniques that I fall in love with, create a bunch of stuff using it and forget about it once I learn the next cool technique. That was the case with this technique. I was going through my scrapbook room, you know doing the quarterly clean out, and ran across something that had this technique used on it. SO I thought I would give it a try with this new stamp set from CTMH “Quick Cards Butterfly” and the GORGEOUS paper from “Florentine”.
Once you have the number of layers that you like on your image, let it cool completely. I have seen where some will put it in their freezer to speed up the cooling process. Once completely cooled you will very gently fold the image until the embossed layers start to crack. You can crack it as little or as much as you would like! After I cracked mine, I added a bit more ink to the top, so as to get into the cracks and around the edges….for a more antiqued look.
I am sure there are youtube tutorials out there on how to create this technique. I just don’t have time right now to post a tutorial! BUT I hope that you were inspired to try this technique out if not for the first time, maybe revisit the technique with new papers and embellies that you have in your stash!!
Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!
