Crackled Challenge

Yes, you read that right, a crackled Santa :) One of the SplitCoastStampers challenges from last week was to use some kind of crackle and you know how much I love challenges, so I jumped on this one because I wanted to do that with this particular stamp. So, here it is. I don't think you can see just how much crackle is on Santa, but it's pretty much and it's very cool.

I took walnut ink in a dauber bottle and put some over the top of the crackles so it went down into the cracks a little bit.

If you want to participate in the challenge, you can find it here. It's fun........ :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

What a beautiful Christmas card with a vintage feel. Your crackling looks great, the dp is sooo pretty (I love those muted Christmas colors), and I like your idea of using the Walnut ink over the crackled part.
