Creative Chemistry 2 - Distress Paint Crackle

Here is another fun and addictive technique by Tim Holtz - Distress Paint Crackle, in his Creative Chemistry Class 2 at Online Card Classes.

For my tag I cut out leaves from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and covered them with Distress Rock Candy Crackle.  After they dried I sponged on Distress Paints and then went over with some Distress Stain and Inks to highlight the crackles.  So cool!

For my card I used the same technique to cover all my chipboard pieces and then I punched a hole in the flower and heart to hang the jump rings and attach the heart, which hangs freely.

I layered chipboard pieces, paper flowers and a gem to complete the flower - I just love the look of the crackle!

I used the Tim Holtz ChitChat stickers, stained with Distress Stains to create a sentiment.

I used the Tim Holtz Resist Paper Stash, covered with Distress Stains, for the inside of my frame.  I coloured the butterfly with Tombow Markers and Rock Candy Glitter.

Hope you head over to Online Card Classes for more inspiration from Tim!
