The lovely Linda Ledbetter of GM, asked us to do something that incorporates Tim's crackle resist technique. And over at Simon Says, we're to do a piece inspired by a song title.
I know this is not a card for everyone, but I'm pretty sure its recipient will like it. It's grungy and graffiti inspired.
It started with black cardstock, which I embossed with Tim's bricked embossing folder. I then applied a coat of antique linen distress crackle paint, thick in some areas, thin in others, just like Tim demonstrated in the video. While the paint was still wet I removed some around the bricks so they'd be more recognizable as bricks. Then I just sat and waited for the paint to dry and the crackling to begin.
I added some shreds of 7 Gypsies tissue paper to look like the remnants of posters on the wall. Adhered them with Ranger's Glue N Seal and being tissue paper, they really did kind of "melt" into the wall.
The writing, deliberately wonky (well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it), was done by dabbing black paint through Tim's stencil type.
The shadow of the woman staring at the wall is actually a Wendy Vecchi stamp, from her Regal Art set.
As for the song title.....are you old enough to guess, LOL? Well, it's Another Brick in the Wall, by Pink Floyd, released in 1979. And now you have a pretty good idea of just how old I am!
