Crackle cheat

Hi, over on the Tando Creative blog this week the theme is "Crackle" - so, for my turn I have made this arch:-

I started off by taking a Karen's frame - gothic arch - the arch I had was white board which takes the distress inks I added really well leaving a great colour base to my pieces… I initially left the back board inside a frame and added my inks and then my crackle cheat - a very old cherry pie crackle stamp…which I added with brown ink across the two pieces… I then separated the two pieces and stamped the base board with a Paperartsy Lynne Perella stamp and black ink, I then adhered three outers together and mounted my base piece on the bottom….et voila… my crackle cheat.

Pop on over to the Tando creative blog and see the other crackly pieces… don't forget that we have a challenge running with prizes up for grabs…hope to see you there.
