This time at Frilly and Funkie the incredibly talented Pamellia is hosting our challenge Snap, Crackle, Crackle.
'Let's see some cracks on your creations! You can use crackle paint, crackle paste, crackle glaze, crackle accents, an old cracked image, a piece of cracked UTEE, a cracked pattern from a stencil or stamp, you can even doodle on your crackle design! anything goes, as long as it cracks me up!!'
So let's get cracking... (you know I had to do that, right?) ;)
The butterfly was given a few coats of gesso, with some Tumbled Glass Distress Paint, and some jewels from my stash down the body for consistency with the background.
I used some glass gems tom my stash to magnify some of the cracks, and good ol' reliable Glossy Accents. This stuff has never failed me :)
Cheesecloth in the background to create texture, the circular die cut is from Spellbinders and the some clipping of Tim Holtz's Mixed Media Die. I love adding interest and layers to my pieces!
Just a peek of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape underneath.
I just ADORE Prima resins and their frames are just the perfect choice to present the centrepiece of the card. I added a couple of light extra layers of gesso. Isn't it just beautiful?
And who doesn't love clocks?!! I think we all have a soft spot for them. They are just perfect in grunge or shabby chic or splattered with a million colours.
I gesso'd over the crackle paint (Picket Fence Crackle), then used light layers of Distress Paint in Bundled Sage, Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and a touch of Salty Ocean.
May Arts Lace for extra texture :)
