This months Sugar Sugar project is hosted by me!! You need to create a project using the cracked glass technnique and of course a Sugar Nellie stamp!
This is simpler than it sounds. I will explain a little further on for those who have not heard or tried this technique.
I decided I wanted to make a gift box and used the tutorial on Katharina's blog a few weeks ago.I then chose this Gorjuss girl and coloured her with prismas and oms. I used quite deep and rich colours as you want colours that will show clearly through several layers on embossing.
To make the cracked glass all you need to do is cover your image (once coloured) with versamark ink (or similar ) and then sprinkle with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and heat to melt. Whilst it is still hot quickly add another layer or two if desired. Once you have a good thickness on your image. Place in freezer for half an hour and then crack in different directions. Crack as much or as little as you like for this effect. ( You can find full instructions here).
Here is a wee close up!
To the top of the box I've added a punched border with an Martha Stewart punch and then used my crop-o-dile to punch a hole and add an eyelet. I then threaded various ribbon through the hole. The sentiment is a rub-on. Flowers are a mixture of Hero Arts and Prima.
Hope you find time this month to have a try at this technique. Make sure you enter to be in with a chance of being chosen as next month's Guest Designer.
