New England Stamper: Cozy Home

Cozy Home

I made this card for Gingersnap Creations' Cozy Home Challenge. It's my first attempt at the Sepia technique from the current issue of Technique Junkies.

I stamped the barn image from Impression Obsession on tan c/stock and highlighted areas with white craft ink and a white gel pen. I added color with Prisma pencils and sponged several shades of brown ink around the edges.

The whole piece looked a little flat to me, so I did a cracked glass effect over the top. I covered the entire panel with Versmark ink and heat embossed twice with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel). I created the cracks by bending the piece in several directions after 15 minutes in the freezer.
