I Love Crackle!.......

**This post is part of the Crackle Medium promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.**

Morning all, how are we all today?
Great to see the sun is still with us and we are not in our winter woolies yet.....
I am really busy at the moment.........some of you may not know that I get married in just over a weeks time and am so busy with preparations as well as staying on top of the crafting!!
So life is a little stressful at the moment but I am hoping that the nice weather stays with us.......
So, we are crackling over the next few weeks and because I am getting married next week, I thought that I would start off with a heart..... "aww" I hear you say or "are you being sick??", lol!!
Lets take a look at what I used to make it.......
I firstly used one of the mdf hearts that I sell at my classes and painted it with Martha Stewart paint which I have sold out of a lot of the colours in. I used summer linen for the base colour. I then painted Imagination Crafts crackle medium over the top of it and dried it and then added another layer of paint, this time I used a blue acrylic paint that I had in my stash. the effect starts happening in seconds and the paint starts cracking.
To accelerate it you can heat it with a heat tool.......

Once dry I stamped on top of the heart using  Stampendous Flower Fields Stamp and then also repeated this on a piece of super smooth card, I then embossed both images with Wow Clear Sparkle....

I added some colour to the white stamped image using Pro-markers and then cut out the flowers and leaves and attached them with Cosmic Shimmer Glue to the stamped heart.....

Lastly I added some Frantage Embossing Powder to the edge of the heart and heat set it on, I used a Versamark Pen to hold the Frantage in place whilst it heat set......
I hope that you like my crackle inspiration and I will be back on Saturday with more.....
Until then, Big hugs
