It's All Going Crackle....

Hello Tando followers, Lisa here and welcome to another blog post from me. 
This weeks theme is crackle. I mean who doesn't love doing a good crackle???

So, I started with a 6 x 4 inch canvas board, one of the brilliant new mini masks from Tando and picked up some of the fabulous DecoArt products along the way. 

Here is my creation...

First, I gave the canvas a good coat of DecoArt paint using darker colours. I then applied a thick layer of DecoArt weathered wood over the top. While it was still wet, I applied a thin coat of DecoArt crackle paint.

This gave me a crackled textured base to work on. After everything was dry, I placed the Tando distressed sequins mini mask on the canvas board and scraped through a heavy amount of homemade texture paste to get some real texture. I continued to do this in random areas of the canvas. 

When the texture paste was completely dry, I painted over the whole canvas board with a wash of colour using DecoArt Media acrylic paints. 

I then went in with the embossing powder. I used copper and black powder and added multiple layers over and over. I also overheated the powder in areas to create its own crackle within the powder. 

Lastly, I stamped the Deep Red Weathered Wall stamp on to areas of the open spaces. 

Hope you like my crackle!
