Black And White With A Touch Of Bob

The challenge this fortnight at That's Crafty is 'black and white with a hint of colour', so here's the one and only Bob Marley.
I started with these colours of Deco Art Multi Surface paints for the background, then made the mega crackle with Weathered Wood and Crackle Paint.
Just starting to crackle here-, it's fun to watch as you can see it crack right before your eyes. The image transfer was then done with DecoArt Matte Medium. This was my first attempt at using this for image transfer, and I'm really pleased with the result.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x

  9. That's really cool - what a great idea to use the colours of the flag under the crackle - subtle but definitely effective.
