I painted a chipboard tag with crackle paint, layering the colours while wet to create a shadowed effect. Once dry, I stamped the wreath from Winterland on the tag with pigment ink. I tried using classic or dye ink, but it soaked right into the paint. The dye ink image looked worse than old. It looked like a ghost town waiting for a brush fire to put it out of it's misery... *sigh*
I like the shabby chic-ness of this card most attributed by the paper. Okay, I might have said this before, but I love this paper...
