Crackled teddy

With this card I played with some crackle paint, as I wanted a different look to what I normally do.  I must learn to become more patient waiting for the paint to crack, as I used my heat gun and it began to bubble in places, hey ho I'll remember for the next time.

Stamps: Teddy stamp from Rubbadubbadoo, Waltzingmouse Stamps text-it and say it loud
Cardstock: Core'dinations
Accessories: Cuttlebug, nesties, distress inks antique linen and brushed corduroy, distress crackle paint rock candy and wonderful metal corners from Nanny Maggie
