Howdy Dad!

This is for the challenge over on Arty Girlz Blog...
We have 'Paint' as the challenge theme this week so go and grab your paintbrushes and have some fun!
and I used the Saturday sketch over on Lauren's Blog

I am so pleased with how this turned out! The challenge gave me the perfect excuse to try my crackle paint. I painted that on the square pp, (not that you can see it was patterned!) If painted quite thinly and it gives small cracks and the thicker the bigger cracks! I then distressed the edges.
Then I got the chance to make the suede effect paper (WOW this is amazing so loving this,) I wish you could touch it. The results are fantastic. I used liquid applique and brayered it over card quite thinly. I left it to dry.......... (while the cracks were also forming on the square piece)
......So once dry I heated with heat tool and wow the paint bubbles slightly and gives a soft suede effect! I couldn't capture it very well in the picture.
I used my new Billy stamps which I watercoloured (more paint), added a little glaze for buckle, and spots! Matt and layered on to scrap of suede paper!
