Das doppelte Lottchen #141

It's sunday, that means it's Lottie and Lisa time!

That means Anni and I usually pick a stamp or stamp set or die that we both have (we nearly have the same taste!) and create a card with this product and another task.
Today I made a wish, and it is:

Stampotique - Stack of Birds
Crackle Paint

I am in love with crackling paint right now - I could use it on ton's of cards. Passing it through a stencil with a gradient distress-blended pattern woul look cool was what I thought. And for the German sentiment saying "Friends like you are priceless" I wanted to make one of the birds stand out - that's why I colored the others in warm grey tones. 

  • Stamp the birds, color and funzzy cut them.
  • blend Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron trough a stencil. Keep the stencil in place and add crackling paint. Let it dry or (carefully!) dry it with your heat gun.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
  • Add the birds using foamsquares - this makes them stand out.
  • use matching embossing powder on some wood veneer stars to embellish your card.
  • ad a strip of washi to finish off the card.

Here's a close-up of the crackling paint. It was hard to capture and looks way better in real life:

  • Crackling Paint adds a lot of texture to your card - keep the rest of your card simple to make the crackles shine.
  • embossing powder is a great way to make your embellishments match your project.
  • Make your sentiments and images say the same. This pulls your card together.

Now hop over to Anni's blog to find her creation :)
