It's sketch time again at My Favorite Things and this week I've taken the sketch in a shabby chic direction!
I've used crayons and crackle paint to get lots of texture in my design today.
Here's my card...
I went with a pink, kraft and sno cone colour theme for this card. The main panel features stamps from Inspired by the Front Porch - Spring. I coloured with watercolour crayons, then applied a couple of thick layers of crackle paint. I wanted this panel to look quite grungy. One cool thing I noticed - my colouring was smooth, but when I brushed on the crackle paint it left brush strokes in the crayon - I like it!
My base layer was a little boring, and definitely not shabby enough, so I stamped it with Finishing Flourishes and the stitched border from Hearts and Stitches.
I had so much fun with the first cracked panel, that I made another one for this inside of my card!
