Hello everyone..

Finally my crackle crackled, I'm so happy..not on my pork, that never fails me, but my crackle paint, it did it.. [ it's the small things i life..]

There is no crackle here yet as I was just using my paste and stencill to get started as I want to make brick walls..this was rough texture..

This was more of a smooth texture which I used for yesterdays dragonfly card and the crackle did not work..

But this wall chuffed..I used Francheville Crackle medium, cant of been expensive if I bought it, but I did, a long time ago..

My penny farthing bike..die cut three times silver and black and pieced back together..
then added gems on the wheel??!!

Loads of cogs die cut out and rusted...the brick wall cut in half diagonally..

There is the side view, facing the light as the card  is really dark and rustic...

And to pop up my back wheel, just to show, I used a gem as I couldn't get the foam cut small enough, worked a treat..

So there go again..thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you soon..

So pleased you had a happy crackle day - as you know, it's one of my favourite things to play with... I wouldn't know what to do without it!

I love your amazing rusty cogs and clocks and gears, and the luscious brick wall texture in the background - and the penny farthing makes a great focal image. Terrific card!
