Something new

Here we are Friday again....oh, don't the weeks go so fast.....dare I say it will soon be time to start thinking of the C word....
Well us card makers usually are getting Christmas cards under way by June...
Today, I thought I would show you my play with Kroma Crackle...
 

I wanted to see how it would look on a card ....I have used it on MDF pieces and they work really well.
The image is the beautiful Elizabeth Bennet stamp from IndigoBlu, stamped in memento ink and coloured with ProMarkers.
 

The background is made by random stamping with the Itsy Bitsy Background stamps...
 

As the Kroma Crackle is clear (if left it dries white) I mixed it with a drop of Acrylic paint ....
 

I assembled the card and then poured the Kroma on...
 

I left this for 48hours to dry...and yes, I did keep going to see how it was drying...once I was happy with the effect I painted over the Kroma with a coat of Slap It On....this does two things....first it stops the cracking effect and secondly it seals it.
A couple of finishing touches including some ribbon and a button and my card was finished.
I was really pleased with the effect, I do hope you like it and as always do feel free to comment.
Off now to pack the car ready for workshops tomorrow at CJ CardCrafts in Edgeley, Stockport....
I will show you photos tomorrow....enjoy your Friday evening....Jo. X
