Broken Hearted...

I am joining the Pretty Little Ribbon Challenge,  again, who's theme is Valentine...

I cut out this tag, did a bit of embossing on it, applied some Tim Holtz Tissue Paper...now for the fun part....I don't have any crackle paint, but love the effect, so I used a tutorial.

I embossed 5-6 layers , using Turquoise Desert Moon From Lyndies Stamp Gang, which is a two tone, and a white, then I put in freezer for 30 minutes. Take it out, crack it by bending your paper, ink the cracks, to emphasize them, by rubbing in the ink, then wipe away the excess.

Thanks for peeking....

I am also joining the Flying Unicorn challenge that Lynn from Trash to Treasure is hosting. You have to make a tag that has a lot of white, and add an element from the previous post....


  1. Hi Gisele
    So very pretty - love the colours.
    Glad it worked this time as I remember you had problems with this technique.
    Could you tell me the name of this Tissue Paper as I like the look of it, it is like ledger paper.
    Great to see you are managing to create :)
    Wishes to you.

  2. Wow Gisèle, your gorgeous hearts are to die for, they are that exquisite! Love the turquoise, such a beautiful colour! Simply a fab tag! Hugs, Ira x

  5. A broken heart that makes me happy. I love the pearlescent look of these and the subtle colors are gorgeous. Great use of technique!

  6. Oh Gisele, how wonderful! Your crackle is sooooo much better than the crackle paint. You really should consider tutorials, I would be your 1st student~

  7. The techniques used created a fabulous piece!
