Crack & Stitch

Today's Mixability Challenge asked us to Crack & Stitch-Here's version #1 where I'd forgotten the stitch part.

I pulled my panel off, cut the edges just a tad then used a zig zag stitch to stitch it onto a Soft Suede frame. I added eyelet and an vertical seam binding piece and glued my bow over that.

I used Ranger Distress Crackle Paint over my stamped and watercolored image. I sponged Soft Suede ink to bring out the crackle more.

You can also see the embossing on the dp if you look closely. I also sponged over this in Suede.

You can see by the man's head where my paint was a little thick and bubbled up when I took a heat gun to speed up the process. I sanded over this area a bit.
