Crackle Me This?

Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog this week asked that you create a project using Diamond Glaze and/or Crackle Paper. Christy even has a freebie crackle paper on her PCP site, you might want to add to your collection. I did a google on crackle paint on paper and found a tutorial HERE that showed how to make your own crackle paper using Elmer's glue and acrylic paint. Instead of the Elmer's, I used Allene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue, and it worked just fine. Then it was off to my Tiddly Inks digi folder to pick and image. I settled on this image called Every Day Princess. Since I'd decided to go with green and orange, what better color to color her hair than orange. Who knew I was also using the colors for the Copic Creations challenge,this week. You can't tell but her skirt, her crown and scepter are colored over with my Spicas, to add a glitter effect. I even used some diamond glaze on the jewels.

The DP paper is from Summer Briggs Dreamcicle Kit. What better sentiment for this image than Princess.
Be sure to go check out the Tiddly Inks store. Christy has added some new images and new papers. My file of images is growing rapidly. I just need more crafting time.
Thanks for stopping by, and if you've got a second, I'd love to hear from you.
