Crackle Time

Hi everyone! We have a new challenge today at Country View Crafts and it's a goody! CRACKLE! We are spoilt for choice with crackle products and mediums - here I used crackle texture paste.

I decided to alter a wooden block. Firstly a coat of gesso, some old book pages and some text stamping.
I added some paint and let it drip, before smudging a bit more with a baby wipe. I added a bit more stamping too.
I then added Wendy Vecchi crackle texture paste through a stencil - once dry I added a little more paint to highlight the cracks.
Finally I stamped and fussy cut some butterflies - adding a little sparkly mod podge.
Do love this stamp set - PaperArtsy Hot Picks - HP1506EZ.

See you Friday for a new challenge at A Vintage Journey
