Cracking up....

Well that is the title of my latest magazine article....and no, it doesn't mean me!!!!
It's beginners guide to Kroma Crackle.....although it did make Karl laugh...
So if you go and buy Issue 13 of Creative Stamping you will find my projects on pages 36, 37 and 38...


And keep looking, as there are others by crafters you will recognise ....with some brilliant Christmas decorations made by Maria Simms...
Here is a closer look at one of the cards...


The background was created by stamping in Distress inks...Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose...


The MDF bauble was first painted with black Gesso and then left to dry...
As Kroma Crackle dries clear, I mixed some with pink acrylic paint and 
applied it...this took two days to reach the cracking design I wanted...I then painted with a coat of 'Slap It On'....this does two jobs....it stops the Kroma cracking anymore and also stops it peeling off...
Next, I stamped the dove using Black Archival ink and coloured it using Distress markers....
Some matting and layering and liquid pearl dots and job done...
The free stamps with this magazine are really good value and perfect for all those Christmas cards and gifts...
Oh wow.....I have just noticed we have reached 100 followers....welcome to my new followers and thank you so much for joining me in my crafty journey...
I will get some stash together and we will have a give away......
Thanks for popping in today....and see you again soon....Jo. X
