A Crackle of a Card


I just love making my own crackle paint, so easy, check out my post on how to make homemade crackle paint.

I created crackle paint on black paper using distress paints (dusty concord, wild honey, broken china and peeled paint). I find them easier to paint with, they seem to be smoother then acrylic paint.

I just love distress paints by Tim Holtz. I reckon they are so cool I am slowly building up the whole collection of colors. I have so far, broken china, barn door, peeled paint, wild honey and dusty concord.

I cut the dried crackle paint to size and made small banners out of them.
I then stamped a sentiment (STAMPlorations vignette - trendy feathers) in versamark watermark ink and heat set it with Zing silver embossing powder on black paper and cutting out.

I wanted to make a simple card (CAS).

Here are pictures. clik for detail of the crackle paint.

I was not sure what to do with the fourth banner, three is always good number, so I decided on a flower, always makes a simple statement. The banner looked like a vase, cool. I was not sure about the stem, thus left it at that.
Accompany the sentiment, on the front, Just a Note, i wanted inspiring words on the inside, so I stamped words from STAMPlorations artiful flutters.
That's it, a simple
