Gel-a-Tins DT - January Pt III

Below post has gone live earlier on the gel-a-tins blog.

Hello everyone, this is Kim with you again sharing another layout which makes use of the wonderful CRACKLE PAINT stamp.

This time I wanted to achieve a kind of brick look and first stamped onto a kraft tag with Mixed Media Ink - a slow drying ink from Donna Salazar Designs, which actually stays wet long enough so you can add embossing powder!
After I set the embossing powder with a heat gun, I sprayed over the whole tag repeatedly with Smooch Spritz in red berries. Once this tried, I took a baby wipe and wiped over the surface of the tag. The embossed areas will repel the ink and the stamped image will be a crispy white, therefore giving the look of old brickwork.
Supplies used:
Cardstock - Donna Salazar Artistic Papers for GCD Studios
Mists - Donna Salazar Smooch Spritz for Clearsnap
Ink - Donna Salazar Mixed Media Inx for Clearsnap
Journaling Spots - Sassafras Lass, Elle's Studio
Stickers - American Crafts, Dymo
Pearls - Want2Scrap
Other - Embroidery Floss, Blossoms


  1. This is awesome, Kim! I so love the slightly vintage look and feel to this, and the crackle tag is really eye catching. :)
