Watercoloured Background with silver crackle stencilling.

Hi everyone, have you had a chance to play along with the latest CAS Stencil Challenge
It's stencilling over a coloured background. Whether it's inked, painted, or coloured card stock, there are lots of possibilities, and loads of ideas to inspire you at the challenge blog.

I had a watercoloured panel in my stash. I'd used blue Kuretake gansai and Finetec silver paint.
I used a Tim Holts floral stencil and pasted on some antique silver crackle texture paste.
It was a bit runny, so seeped under the stencil in places, and the crackle didn't get much chance to develop as I used  heat tool to dry it lol!
Here's a closer look.

What crackle there is gives a sort of quilted look.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Seize the Birthday where I'm playing along with the anything goes birthday option.

A brand new challenge, AAA Birthday, where it's anything goes birthday.

Addicted to Stamps & More where it's anything goes.

Tim Holtz floral layering stencil: Finnabair antique silver crackle texture paste; Kuretake Gansai and Finetc watercolour paints; Spellbinders circle die; Happy Little Stampers doodled flowers sentiment; versafine ink & clear ep.

Thanks for visiting,
