Crackled glass technique

Omg,..its really tough to get back the mojo after a break or vacation.Finally i got down to work today,especially for the lily pad card challenge.Loved the sketch by nina,n i thought its the right time to try the crackled glass technique too,tutorials from split coast stampers.

I am always a curious cat,when it comes to trying out new techniques.Actually i have to it keep it in the freezer for sometime(atleast 3 to 4 mins),after the embossing is done to get the cracks.But i took it after 1 min.,he..he..so dint get much cracks.Once again i embossed it,kept it again in the freezer for 3,4 times n finally got the result...,uff...i seriously cant wait to see the results:)And finally i inked up my flourishes stamps.Its been nearly 2 month since i got the stamps:((once upon a time i was dying to get those????some times we go crazy in buying n just forget it after getting it in hands.
I am not sure whether the cracks are showing well in the photograph,but it looks great in real..a superb technique for sure.

P.S:Want to customize your pattern paper for your project?,use the main image stamp you use in the card for the pattern paper with some neutral color inks,the effect is really good:).
