Just Us Girls Technique Challenge

Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I'm sitting here relaxing (well not really...kind of keep asking my little ones to get back in bed!)...while Pat is out with Ryan and Jonathon at our high school football game.  It's youth football night which means it is a full house supporting our Loveland Tigers!

This week's challenge is to use the Crackled Glass technique.  For a tutorial on how to do this click here.  The key to remember with this technique is to stick in the freezer after embossing.  Sounds crazy but it works!
Also, a big thank you to Just Rite Stamps for sponsoring Just Us Girls this week.  Aren't these stamps just scrumptious?  Can't wait to use them again and again!
Come play along with us at Just Us Girls!

Ingredients:  Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DSP; Just Rite Stamps; KaiserKraft Gems; SU Bravo Burgundy, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Crumb Cake Paper/Ink, SU Basic Black and Pink Pirouette Ink; Clear Embossing Powder; SU Ribbon
