I added lots of Distress Ink to the tickets beforehand to age them more.
For this second card I stamped onto a large square of patterned paper before doing the cracked glass technique. It's a bit more difficult to get an even layer of embossing powder on larger surfaces and the cracking can be a bit more random but it still gives a nice effect.
