Crackled Ornament

Well I thought I would try making a Cracked Ornament with my stamp from SOME ODD GIRL even have a monthly link up to show off their stamps too.
 I have a few for my own tree at home, I love them but I did learn a few things about crackle effect  on a card.  I made a red ornament (matching her hair) then used the crackle on top let it dry came back to a neon Bright orange ornament and so I went over it all over again with a red marker to remake it red which it did but it's a bright red instead of dark. Now I'm, happy with how it turned out. Next time I'll guess I'll try sealing in the colours first.

  11. Great card - a really cute image. I've had the same problem with a red Promarker and Glossy Accents! If you start with a darker red colour, it works much better.
