Emboss It!!!!

We had some stunning entries with Nikki's Ink It!!! Challenge over at Craft Room Challenge. I don't envy her the job of picking her Top 3!!! For our next challenge Esther is asking us to Emboss it!!! You could wet or dry emboss, and the DT team have come up with some great embossing pieces. We have the generous sponsor of Stamp Addicts for this challenge, the winner will receive a 10 pound gift voucher to spend- Whoo Hoo- you will be spoilt for choice, they have such a big selection to chose from.
I had so many ideas running round in my head for this challenge, I could hardly chose, my final piece came out nothing like I thought, but I love it anyway.
I haven't used the cracked glass technique for so long, and it's such fun, and creates such a cool vintage look to your stamping. I put about 5 layers of ordinary clear embossing powder, then popped the whole thing in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then cracked the embossing, and sponged with a darker ink to highlight the cracks. I hope you can see that ok, it proved to be a bit tricky to get a photo of.

 Stamp set: SU Lovely as a Tree
I'm entering this card into the following challenge: Fashionable Stamping Challenges Embossing
 Have a great week and I can't wait to see what you all come up, and have some fun :-)

Fabulous Debi. I love your cracked glass image, it's a technique I haven't done for a long time either.
