In my house there is a butterfly ....

Dans ma maison il y a papillon.

Whilst on holiday, I bought a plain wood little house. Time to play.

I primed the wood with gesso and once dry painted it with turquoise and copper paints. On top of this I painted a splodge if crackle paint and highlighted the cracks with copper paint. Once I had added some stamps to some of the edges I stuck on some German Scrap that I had stained with stream alcohol ink. Having stuck on some relevant quotes I coloured these with turquoise ink. To add some finer detail I highlighted some of the stamping with a turquoise metallic pen and added some turquoise and coppers pearls, using pearl pens. Last but not least, I added the grungeboard butterfly which I decorated with a butterfly stamp and Glimmermist.

Very, very nice! I tried using crackle but didn't have the success you did. May have had to do with being impatient and using a heat gun on it - lol!
