2 New Techniques in One Card

Hello again. I have a few cards to show you today. This card I managed to get 2 new techniques ( new to me anyway) done. First was the Cracked Glass Technique. I have really had fun with this one and is so easy. I stamped the image in brown ink and colored it in using markers. I than did 3 coats of the Ultra Thick embossing powder and put it in the freezer for 5 mins and than cracked it. I did rub ink over the cracks to kind of antique it a bit. The second technique was the marble technique. I loved doing this one too. Since it was the first time I had done it I just used one color of ink to make the background paper. Next time I will try more than one. :) I hope that you will give both of these techniques a try they are a lot of fun. Thanks for looking.
