It's magic

Hi everyone,

Did you have a wonderful weekend too? Currently I'm in Barcelona, and fly back to the Netherlands tonight. I had a blast!

This week Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog has another fun challenge for you, a magical one. Be inspired by the impossible and show us your interpretation!

I think Crackle Paste is kind of magical. It's amazing how the crackles appear when it dries, what a wonderful effect. It was a struggle to get the crackle paste on the die cut Hugs, but after some attempts and determination I got it done! With some Gold Lamé Color Shine I added some magic sparkle, and it also made the crackles stand out more.

The background is coated with Gesso. With the Frag Flower stencil and some Distress Inks I applied lots of colors. Because the distress inks are on top of the gesso they react even more with water then usual. Love that effect too!

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
