Dt post for Creative Artiste - Challenge #25

Hi everyone! Another month gone by so a new challenge over at Creative Artiste.
This month we are sponsored by:

 DecoArt - here's the prize:

For this project I found a large tag that had been hanging around for ages.
I covered it with white gesso which I dried with my heat tool as I'm too impatient!
I then gave it a coat of DecoArt Americana acrylic paint in burnt umber, dried again then applied a thin coat of DecoArt Americana weathered wood crackle medium. Once this had dried applied a final coat of DecoArt Americana acrylic in snow white, dried with heat gun & watched it crackle!
I carefully stamped the image onto the tag, hoping that the face would be in a place that was not too crackled.
I used some Pan Pastel to colour the face, and used pink gilding wax to colour the flowers - putting on with my finger. Went around the edges with the wax as well then finished off with some gold Rub'n'Buff.
Some lovely goodies in that prize - makes me wish I could enter!
Pop over to the blog & check out what the other DT's have made - you have to be in it to win it - go on! Just think what great fun you'll have using all those goodies!
Thanks for stopping  by.
