Vintage Crackle ATC

ATC

 

Hello Crafters, and welcome to another blog post, this time all about my crackled ATC! This is another technique learnt from the wonderful Laurart.

First of all I cut my ATC to size and set about to create the crackle effect you can see in the first photo above. Using French Roast Fresco acrylic paint I covered the card completely.

Next, I used a thin layer of crackle glaze, and spread it extremely thinly across the card. Then I topped this with vintage lace Fresco acrylic…and watched as the cracks formed.

DSCF6343I then cut a small amount of card, and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to create the above effect.

DSCF6344Then on a smaller card I used Bundled Sage Distress Ink. Then using a script stamp and Vintage Photo I created the above look.

DSCF6345I cut up some doillies and coloured one section in Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and the other with Vintage Rose Distress Stain. I edged both parts with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I added a flower embellishment and a heart. For the heart I used Antique Linen Distress Stain and edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
