Crackle Paint Tag

Pin It!


I did this tag for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge. This weeks challenge was crackle paint. I have several of Tim Holtz's crackle paints and love using them and I used several on this tag. I used the Rock Candy on the entire base of the tag and the girl. The rock candy is a bit thinner and gives a smaller crackle than the other crackle paints. I also used the peeled paint, fired brick and tarnished brass. I love how the crackle paint gives the image a totally aged appearance even though I just made it today. I stamped the background paper (which is of course Tim's also) with a rubber stamp by Stampendous called Music Score that after I inked the stamp up I remove a bit of the ink from the stamp with a baby wipe before stamping so it would give a more random stamp. I want the print of the music to stand out too much to go along with the saying on her dress.

Great Job Christie! Then again did we expect anything less... I have the rock candy distress paint and always forget to use it. Am going to do something with it today.

When I read about your coupons and that Tims paper was at Michaels I wanted to go right over but Glenn has to go to work... so I am pouting. Not really. LOL!! Cant wait to get over there though.

Take Care~ Sherry
