This is the best free stamp to come out of Craft Stamper yet, in my opinion...love it!
So here it is on two quick cards I made for Stamp Club tonight, using the new and delicious Eco Friendly acrylic paints.
I was actually trying that crackle effect with PVA glue on the back ground of the image. Didn't really succeed but hey, I liked the weathered effects I got anyway and the way the layers of different colours come through in a subtle way. I sanded the edges to give an even more worn, beachy look.
So, here's some detail, showing the paint background which bubbled instead of cracking so I just sanded the bubbles and got this cool aged look which I really like...
I used Tim Holtz's Sizzix Die for the lower edge - 'On The Edge, Scallops' - which I really like a lot.
Here I die cut it into an old strip of offcut metal from a previous project which had been inked and embossed with various E.P.s.
