Creative Jump Start #7

Jump Starter Louise
Nelson, presented some techniques for crackling I hadn't tried before. I actually did two on this page, the first being stamping the crackle effect into molding paste. I thought mine turned out quite nice, but I didn't have the right shades of spray ink. I really am not happy with the results. I'll have to give this one another go after I do some sprays purchasing.


I wanted purple 
shades to match Louise's photo, but only had Desert Moon Wild Iris Glitz Spritz and Wild Plum Color Wash. I just didn't get a good blend here at all...


but check out the crackle.


I just have to try this again!

I really love the way it turned out!! I think you are too hard on yourself. I am a huge purple fan and I think it is beautiful. (We are our own worst critic...lol)

Look forward to seeing what you do next time :-)

Happy Crafting
