TESC90 Cracked Glass Snowman

I’ve been wanting to try the cracked glass technique. Well actually, I wanted to try it on the vintage snowman card I made the other day but I just couldn’t bare to risk it cause I was so happy with how I colored him. I purposely colored this snowman a little simpler so I would have the guts to give this a shot. Result: WAY FUN! I'm going to have to invest in the UTEE so I can really get some dramatic results with this. (Using clear detail embossing powder gave me more subtle results.)

I stamped the snowman from the new Shephard Snow Family set from FireCracker Designs for Pamela . (Thanks Shelly for pointing out that I could put images in his little twig hand!) He is colored with Copics and I added some glitter pen to his star. I sponged browns around him. Then I embossed clear over him at least 4 times (I lost count!). After he had cooled a bit. I folded him and cracked the embossing.
