Wild Things card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Wild Things".

I had the Stacked Deckle dies for a while now and I really needed to use it. I started with the biggest one and cut it out of Kraft cardstock. The Crackle Paste I tried to make it black with Distress Paint Black Soot, only the Paste became slightly too fluid. It went a bit under the Industrial stencil because of it... Does anyone have a tip to be able to color the Crackle Paste without getting too fluid?


The second largest of the Stacked Deckle dies I used with white cardstock and stamped it with the Papillon stamp and then color given with Distress Ink Peeled Paint and Ground Espresso. After the Crackle Paste was dry I gave it some more interest by using the Read to Me stamp in random placed and I went over the crackles with Metallique Wax Bronze Age to emphasize them more.




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.

The raven looks SO GOOD in the scene you created! Regarding the black crackle--my only thought would be to let it sit awhile after mixing so that it dries/thickens up a little before using with a stencil. I've tried tinting paste medium black (never works--I always end up with gray) but you have peaked my curiosity and I'd like to try tinting crackle.
