I used this card to teach the Shattered Glass technique in my class this month.
I started with two chipboard heart shaped die cuts. My original inspiration came from Karen Hasheck and her Tarnished Silver Look Embossing.
I did not have any black embossing powder, so after doing a base coat of copper (rather than silver) embossing, I used clear embossing powder (several coats as I do not have any clear UTEE), and on one of the last coats I added just a sprinkle of blue to imitate verdigris on the copper.
A tip that makes life easier - heat the layers of embossing powder from underneath, even when using versamark, it saves the powder blowing off when you have a thick layer !!
The 'shattered' look was achieved by simply bending the chipboard after it had cooled.
The feature panel was cut using a MB stitched rectangle, the edges sponged with espresso ink, the hearts from a Inspired Stamps set, and the sentiment by Montarga Stamps were embossed with Copper EP, before adding the larger heart.
The feature panel was then mounted over some wall paper, then onto the blue base.
On the second card that I made during the class I angled the panel and partially placed it over the ribbon for a more relaxed look.
