Cracked Glass Technique

I had such fun making this card!  The focal image is from the stamp set Friends til the End (Gina K Designs).  After coloring the flowers I applied Versamark and Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and then I heat set it.  I repeated this a couple of times to get a lovely, shiny glass finish.  I then popped it in the freezer for two minutes and then I was ready to crack 'the glass'.  Here is a great video by Gina showing this technique. 

The background was created using the Wax Paper Embossing Technique and here is another video by Gina where you can see how she does this.  While I had my supplies out and my iron on (it's a lot more fun than ironing clothing ;), I made 8 backgrounds with various designs and colors.  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
