Crackle Week @ Tando

Hi folks and welcome to my blog post for Tando. This week, the theme is 'crackle'.
Everyone loves a bit of crackle don't they???

Here is my creation...

This week I used another one of the Tando long tags. (Yes, I am definitely addicted to these Tando tags!) And one of the hearts from the Tando grab bag of hearts

First, I added a layer of card stock with a wooden pattern over the front side of the tag with PVA glue and let dry. And painted the heart with DecoArt white gesso.

I added DecoArt crackle paint all over the surface of the heart and around the edge of the tag.

I used DecoArt texture sand paste and the Tando 4 x 4 distressed sequins mini stencil on the heart and the tag

Then used the paste around the edge of the tag.

I painted the tag and the heart using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paint. Then I added gold metallic paint on the heart.

Toodles for now,
