The technique posted to link Next-Generation-Stampers@yahoogroups.com The 1st photo is the background I started with a technique I learned in a workshop but for some reason I had no use for this particular one. So I thought I'd collage a bit on it then do the cracked glass technique. 2nd photo I used an black ink pad, though I was not thrilled with it. 3rd photo added reinker ink to it and now love it. I have done this technique many times in the past but it was great to revisit it, thanks Trish.
