Santa's almost here!
Well, actually he IS here....
I wanted to share this fun UTEE - Cracked Glass Santa card I made.
The background on the left is a tree stamped with Pine Needle Distress Stain and the right side was made using a combination of Barn Door & Peeled Paint Distress Stains.
Santa was colored with various Distress Markers then covered in multiple layers of UTEE, allowed to cool then cracked.
A closer look at Santa. Someone once asked me how my cracks don't end up on the face. I start off by cracking the edges first. If you start off by cracking in the center that's where the cracks will show up the most, usually obliterating the face. Start off with smaller cracks along the edge and sort of bend the image where you want your cracks to go. After two or three attempts you'll get the hang of controlling (as best as possible) your cracking.
Hope you're all enjoying the season!
We have our first two Christmases this coming weekend!
Of course I'm not ready but hopefully by the time it rolls around I will be :)
How are you coming with YOUR preperations?
