Crackle ATC

 This month's theme on the 9ATC group is Crackle….. I made wrinkle free distress background using Distress inks, Distress paint & Distress Stain.
Cut the background into 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" cards, stamped a collage image with black India Ink. Next, covered half the card with sequin waste and applied Crackle Paste over the sequin waste, then let it dry or "cure" for three days.

After the crackle paste had completely dried, I found it had no cracks in it. Maybe that was because I used a thin layer of the crackle paste, I'm not sure. Well, I was going to try to color the crackle paste after it dried, so I decided to paint over the paste with tarnished brass Distress Crackle Paste and let it dry. Success! Lots of lovely fine crackles.
 Cut a circle out of a vintage image of a women's face (printed in purple ink), covered it with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and let it dry. Then used vintage photo Distress Stain over the cracks to soak into the image. Colored the edges of a paper flower with espresso Acrylic Paint and glued the crackle image in the center of the flower.
 Used the espresso acrylic paint to color the edges of the ATC and added the flower.
