PDD Wed/Your Special

Ive included lots of pictures to show how I made this card!!! Hope you enjoy !! First: I used crackle paints to make my background border.
I started with the antique linen,and the vintage photo. The bronze I used after.

You will want to dabb around the edges using both colors at the same time


This is super easy and gives a real pretty look to the paper.
Last I added the bronze .
In this picture you can see it real good.




Now for the flowers. I used the antique bronze crackle paint on them too.

In this picture I just wanted to show you what the flowers look like before I started. (the bottom 2 are not done here in this pic)


Now to add some shimmer to the dp. I used forever red on the dp, and perfect bronze on the outside dp that I made.

You can see how much water I used on the little bit of perfect pearls. This was enough to do the border.


And here is another picture showing what the dp looks like after I added the red just to different areas. I didnt use it all over the dp.
You can see both in this picture too.

And here is my card all done!!!

Hey Cheryl, I'm really lovin' that crackle paint. I saw one of your tutorial on the crackle paint and wanted to try it out. A few days ago I actually was going to buy a few of them but I'm sort of in a spending freeze and had to stop myself from buying them. I can sometimes be an impulse buyer and well, I'm trying not to do that.

Thank you for sharing the tutorial. The results are fantastic and I definitely do want to try it out one day. Your card turned out beautiful. I love the color results of the crackle paint on your card. As always, gorgeous card!
