French Country ~ a project with Distress Crackle Paint

I must confess... I love the French Country look! The thing is... I feel like it looks great in everyone else's home BUT mine... lol... So I have to settle for a decidedly French feeling card! No designer paper on this one though. I used plain card stock in black, mustard and dark red, distressing and inking all edges. I stamped the images on white card stock and then applied a new product for me, Distress Crackle Paint. The finish I chose is clear and I LOVE how it looks! It makes my images look like they are under old glass... SO COOL! I lightly inked the crackle before matting. The edges did curl up using this product but I like the look and decided to leave it. So fun and super easy!

So enough talk... here it is...


Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings...
