A Cracking Time!

Over at The East Wind Facebook page there is a challenge going on that is 'Step Away From The DP!' so after some thought about how to tackle this I decided on embossing for texture in the background and using the cracked glass technique with the image.  I've only done the technique once before and quite some time ago, don't know why I've only done once as it is an easy and fun technique and it was great to get my melting pot and UTEE out again.  The image I chose is Lucy Loo Magnified Star and I decided to go with a monochromatic colour scheme and as I was 'cracking glass' I also did some distressing with ink.  The pocket watch die is an Xcut die, the bow and clock hands are TH and I added some brads and an antique key.  I'm really pleased with how this turned out and guess what ... Ria has laid claim once again! lol
