A cracked and glitterified SFYTT


It's a new month, full of wonderful SFYTT sketches coming your way each Saturday, so be sure to check in and play along! We're heading full force into the holiday season which means busy, busy, busy (I know I've got a million ideas swimming around in my head to make/do), but carve out a little time for yourself as a stress reliever and try some, or all, of Jen's sketches--a sure mojo booster!

Ok, let's see...oh, see that cute little nutcracker penguin...ain't he cute?! He can be yours, along with a whole slew of swanky new TCP stamps this Tuesday, November 10th...don't miss the TCP blog hop for more of Mr. Penguin, Sprinkle and Poochie!

After stamping and coloring Mr. P with my new Copics (squeal of delight), I covered him with a few layers of Glassy Glaze Enamel, sprinkled with bits of gold glass glitter. You know the rest of the routine, right? Into the freezer for a few minutes, take him out, tell him a joke and "crack" him up...ha, ha, ha...I crack myself up! It's the cracked glass technic, glitterified, and if you're not familiar with it...click here for a SCS tutorial.



One little tip: be sure that your ink is completely dry before starting the cracked glass technic. I had a bit of bleeding on the candy cane, which I believe is because my ink wasn't completely set.

Let's check out the rest of the gang:
