Distress, Crackle paint

Hi again, just a quick post, I was playing this evening with my stuff from PARTICRAFT and found a new item to me. Tim Holtz distress crackle paint, yummy, I love new stuff. 

So I painted a tag and waited, ooh I really liked this, lots of small cracks, I imagined they would be larger, any way, had a good play, this was fun. I added some stamps from Crafty individuals and flowers from Artoz and bingo an inspirational tag to lift my spirits, happy to go to bed now:)

I think if you paint it thick you get bigger cracks, but I didn't really get to grips with it!!
I love your tag, very elegant

This is gorgeous! Not seen anything quite like it before. I really like it on that background too. Are they made to go together?

Thanks for sharing how you made this as I felt it was a bit cheeky for ask for more details. I think I chose the wrong word when I said I liked it on that 'background'. What I meant was the corrugated surface behind the tag. It looks like kraft, which I love. So beautifully understated. The more I look at your tag, the more I love it. Thanks.
