Today, Colleen has a beautiful technique using Crackle Paint with a gorgeous card. Please scroll down to download the PDF file. Hugs, Joanna

It’s my turn to show you a project for Whoo Hoo Wednesday, and I’ve got a larger-than-A2 Victorian card to feature.

I began with a dressmakers form made from chipboard (thanks to my friend Carol for sending me a slew of them!), and painted it with white Crackle Paint.

When the paint was dry and crackled, I sponged on Walnut Stain Distress Ink with a soft, swirling motion, to get it in the cracks.

Time for a skirt.  Turn the dressmakers form upside down on a piece of patterned paper that is also upside down, and trace with a pencil.

After adhering the trimmed patterned paper skirt, it’s time to glue on some pretty lace.  This is a remnant from my stash.

I added a bit of ivory braided trim to the waist (yes, it’s quite high-waisted!) and then glued on a piece of a cheap pearl necklace.  I set an acrylic stamping block over the pearls to apply pressure until the glue set.

As a last minute idea, I sponged some white ink to the edges of the dressmakers form.  I also added some BEAUTIFUL little pink roses from the Inspired By Stamping store (link at end of post).

The patterned papers are retired Anna Griffin pieces, and gave such a Victorian flavor to this card.

See the crackle on the stand?

I stamped a portion of a sentiment from the Daisies set on this oval die cut, and gently shaded it with sage chalk ink.

This is a peek inside the card.

Thank you SO much for joining me here today!
