The Usual Suspects

Good morning, it's time for my second Country View Crafts piece for the crackle challenge. So here we have the Usual Suspects.

All the paints and mediums are from the DecoArt Media range. 

The background was painted in Cobalt Turquoise the I rubbed my Cherry Chapstick (cue Katy Perry) through a brick wall stencil, and painted over in Yellow Oxide.

Once dry I rubbed away the paint, then used an Andy Skinner stencil for the words and lines.

Time for the crackle now. I used Crackle Glaze painted quite thinly to give small crackles.

 More crackle with some Patina Green Antiquing Cream rubbed through.

I really like these small crackles.

So characters in place and finished off with some washi tape. All ready to go and see the new Alice Through The Looking Glass film.

There's loads of time for you to join in with our challenge, so crack on with your crackle!  Have a great week, and thanks very much for looking x
