crackle paint resist

hmmmmm... this is not just painting... I though it's quite straightforward. Yes, it is not complicated, BUT, it's difficult to have balance with a background and a main image.

I painted 6 different colors, Broken China, Tarnished Brass, Fired Brick, etc. I found lighter colour is easier to balance with all. Broken China or Fire Brick were too loud for me. But, Tarnished Brass, I liked a lot. Even though it's also loud color, it was friendly to the background. I didn't keep it because I stamped something badly....  I also liked Tattered Rose. Again I made mess. While I was stamping, lots of paint stuck onto clear stamps, so that cracked parts were almost all gone....
These two, finally I thought "acceptable"....!

I washed my hands more than 10 times today!
Tim mentioned in his video other day about Ranger SCRUBBIE. This really works! so well! I use every day, all the time. another one of must have items for me.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog.
