Live, Laugh, Love

**This post is part of the Crackle Medium promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.**
Good morning, I hope everyone's have a nice weekend. Here's another of my crackle medium samples. For an explanation of crackle mediums, see my post from Tuesday.

 My background was a square of Imagination Crafts' Damask Swirl satin card, which I painted with MS Pollen acrylic paint after the crackle medium was dry...........

When that layer was dry I brushed it with thin layers of Imagination Crafts' Bronze Brocade Silkies, first with a damp paintbrush, then with a dry brush.......... 

 I applied MS Beetle Black paint with a stencil brush through the TCW Live, Love, Laugh 6x6 stencil.............


I matted the top layer onto black card, then onto a 7x7 white card blank & finished with a few adhesive gems.

  1. Lovely mixed media piece, the crackle gives an instant distress effect, very cool...

  2. Love this stencil, the bronze paint works so well, lovely card.xx

  3. Love the colours on this one and a great stencil.

  4. The crackle effect is quite different on that card, pays to try it on different materials but the effect is always great!
