Crackle Dreamer

Hello, everyone!  A couple of weeks ago I had made a card using this same Darkroom Door Butterflies Stencil. This time I actually let the crackle embossing paste dry naturally.  Guess what?  It turned out perfectly with the crackles and not the funky bubbles!

I used the stencil as a mask as well, rubbing various Prism Inks over the butterfly to add color and emphasize the crackles.

I sponged the background with Prism Ink then used the PaperArtsy JOFY PS147 Stencil with a damp paper towel to remove some of that ink. I removed the stencil mask and spattered the card front with water. Yum!

I also sponged a few Pronty A5 Pretty and Cool Stars Stencil with more Prism Ink.

Finally I stamped the Katzelkraft Dreamer sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black.

  1. Hi love the butterfly wondering how you use the crackle embossing powder? I have really only used plain embossing powders with a heat tool and have not really had success with them but love how your butterfly turned out

    1. Hello! To achieve this effect, apply crackle texture paste through a stencil, remove stencil and sprinkle with embossing powder. Shake off excess. Let it dry naturally, (the powder will stick to the paste). Once the paste is dry, emboss as usual. It's a great effect!

    2. also, in re-reading Toni's description - she let the crackle paste dry and then rubbed it with Prism inks to color it (no embossing powder involved). That is also a very cool effect. =)
