Keep Christmas Card, Cracked Glass

I am having so much fun with this Keep Christmas stamp set. Today I stamped the image with Basic Black Ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then used my Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens to color it in. I then covered the card stock using my Versamark® Pad, poured Glassy Glaze Enamel over the entire piece, tapped off excess and using my Heat Tool I embossed. I did this 3 times total and then placed it in the Freezer. After a few minutes I took it out and immediately crinkled it to give it cracks. I did this twice. The saying I stamped with Basic Black on Very Vanilla but this time I mounted it onto Bravo Burgundy then cleared it with Versamark® and Clear Embossing Powder. I also used Basic Black & Always Artichoke card stock for layering. The card itself is River Rock, one of Stampin' Up!'s® new In Colors. This technique is called Cracked Glass (click for a tutorial at Splitcoast) let me know what you think and give me a shout if you have any questions.
