Mega Crackle Tag

When I saw Sues's blog post this morning, I just knew I had to have a play. I have been meaning to have a go at this ever since Andy put the video out there, but have been inspired by Sue. So I painted an mdf tag in lipstick, orange sherbert and school bus multi surface satin over a coat of gesso.

Then after a layer of weathered wood, I added the magic layer of crackle paste. This was just after I'd finished covering it.

And this is what it looked like when it was dry.

I stamped a variety of oriental images on the surface in black versa fine ink.

That's Crafty have a theme of black and white with a hint, so I'm entering my tag.
