Just Us Girls - Technique Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone! This week the Just Us Girls team has a technique challenge for you and something special to give away as well. Andrea chose the cracked glass technique for all of us to try.We are also being sponsored once again by JustRite Stampers. They have been very generous to the JUGs DT this year! We are so happy about that! We are all sharing Christmas/Holiday images on our cards. I chose Vintage Christmas for my main image and Christmas Nested Frames for my sentiment. I love the varied vintage images in this set. This snowman was colored with copic markers, then I followed the instructions on SCS for the cracked glass technique to create this look. Really cool technique. It is a technique I've done before, but many of the JUGs DT mentioned that they had never done it and enjoyed the challenge. Here's a closeup of the image so you can see the cracks that I created. Now about that giveaway I mentioned. JustRite is offering up some amazing products for one randomly drawn winner. Here's what they are giving away:

2 JustRite Christmas Collection stamp sets of choice
2 JustRite coordinating stampers/mounts
5 Copic Sketch markers of choice, from JustRite’s offering
