Adventure Awaits Inspiration

I wanted to send a friend some happy mail so I started working on a card...

I started by applying white gesso to a piece of thick mat-board, followed by a nice layer of crackle paste. Once dried and crackled, I put a few drops of liquid acrylic paint on the background and sprayed it with water to make the color run into the cracked spaces as well as make the color a little more washed out looking. I spread some gel medium onto an area that I wanted to sparkle and used pink and white mica flakes for that. I then placed some gesso onto my craft mat and mixed in some metallic wax (in the color: Indian Pink) to get a pink paint. Using my “new” custom paint color, I painted a small round chipboard frame. I added inka-gold around the edges of the background as well as onto the frame. I glued the frame onto my background with the same gel medium as I used for the mica flakes. To finish it off I glued some gold thread to the back of a quote chip. I wanted this card to be a little more substantial, so I glued my background onto a piece of water color paper that I cut down to A4 size. 

I am sure my friend will love the card as much as I enjoyed making it!
