This time I am going to show that you don't need all those products, you can easily achieve a "faux" crackle effect too. It's simple, quick and very effective.
My card is similar to the first card I shared, this time,as we have now passed Father's day, it is a Dad's birthday card I made to sell in Dotty's.
I used my vintage childhood photo again.
For the base I used cheap acrylic paints, I buy these from The Works. I used a piece of grey board saved from the back of a paper pad and cut it into 2 and gessoed it - is that a verb??! it can be a Janeism then ;0)
I used one piece for my card, the other I have plans for.
Here is my finished card again. I used snippets of book pages and also tiny snippets of paper to die cut my dotty letters.
It would be great if you can join in with our crackle theme over at Country View...you need to get cracking though as the challenge closes in 4 days time. You could even win a £20 voucher from our Sponsors, Country View Crafts, if your name comes up in the random draw. Here is the link.
