' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Crackle for the terrified

Crackle for the terrified

First day of the month...it's time for another challenge at Country View and the theme chosen by Evelyn is Crackle.
To ease in those terrified by the real crackle, I picked an easy, no fuss, no mess method of getting crackle on projects!

The way to get perfect crackle every time... use a stamp and fake it! Plenty of brands have made crackle stamps, here I used one by Crafty Individuals, stamping it partially with a mix of brown and black inks.

And a closer look at that crackle!

Paper: Graphic 45
Die cut: Marianne Design
Flower: Prima

Thanks for coming by,


  1. Your 'fake' crackle give a great effect Christine and a great choice of colours and elements to create a lovely vintage feel.
