My to-do list today included making a card using an old technique I haven’t used in years. DIY crackle background, made by layering acrylic paints and mod podge. I love this effect. This card goes well with a few of this months challenges. I will be submitting this to Creative Embellishments May Challenge as well as The Mixed Media Card Challenge and using it to apply for The Mixed Media Card Challenge Design Team. I am also playing along at sisters of craft.
My card background was made using the DIY crackle background, layered with sheet music stamps by Heidi Swapp, Ink is weathered wood Distress ink. The title was actually taken from an old hymnal I found in a local junque store. I added a Creative Embellishment chippy bird cage to fulfill my “winged” portion of the challenge. I was Inspired by the colors, lace and bird house found on the Creative Embellishments challenge blog so I decided to incorporate those elements into this card. The final product is this gorgeous shabby chic card. Hope you like. Please feel free to leave a comment below and take a look at the Challenges for your self!
