Completely cracked


If you've stopped by before, you'll know that this year I've been joining in with challenges set by Isa. This month the tag challenge is on the theme of crackle. I think I should have prepped a bit earlier for the FB live, as some of my options had dried out and one said takes three days to dry. In the end I tried to rehydrate the DecoArt crackle paste by poking holes in it with a pokey tool and spritizing it with water.

I spread it on a tag already primed with white paint. It didn't turn out too badly, although it was a bit brittle and delicate. I sprinkled and spritzed Brusho to build up the background, with a little stamping here and there, before adding the focal images and text.


I added some Crackle Accents to the bulb, but that was also a bit dried up and tacky. You can just about see some very fine crackle.

This was my first opportunity to use the new Katzelkraft stamps which you'll definitely be seeing again.

Thank you for taking the time to look. Have a wonderful day xxx


  1. I so love Katzelkraft stamps and the texture looks good too. The finished tag looks great. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

  2. Agreed these stamps are beautiful and I loved the tag at first sight! I wish I had the time to do this month's challenge as I do love a crackle... in any form! I have taken to spritz the top of my mediums (the ones in pots) with water after use, to avoid them drying out. Demineralised water would be best but I use cooled down water from the kettle and fill a spritz bottle for that purpose. x


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. xx
