It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Technique 101 Week 2

On to Week 2 of Technique Class 101 hosted by iScrap.com
For this Challenge we are to use Utee and the crackle effect,enmboss a title ,Watermark our Background and create an embellishment using Utee.
Actually this is 2 Challenges combined into one for this class...running short on time!

I also used some of the wonderful treats that came from my RAK Kit hosted by the "Sisterhood of Scrap" and contributed by "Scrap in Style TV"
Vintage Tag is a digital from Scrappy Cats Designs I printed out.

Words of caution,DO NOT leave in the freezer longer then a couple of minutes,otherwise when you go to crack you will find pieces flying everywhere!

For my photo I used 3 photographs to achieve this look..no Utee on the top cut out face and only a light layer on the body..found that it crackled just as well with light coat of Utee.
The bottom photo is four layers of Utee..cooled and cracked then inked.
Scotch Guard double stick foam tape for dimension.

The frame is first Inked,them embossed randomly with different metallic powders..covered with four layers of Utee,then Stamped and added bling.
