Here's a litte tutorial on how to use Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, Tim's Blending Tool and some Crackle Paint!
Image

Before we start though.. I have a tip about what to I use underneath my project when using paints/inks/crackle etc...
Prima packaging - the big packets that hold canvas sheets, some iron-ons or canvas projects etc...they are great for jobs like this. I keep the plastic on. And when they get too mucky - throw away!
Image

STEP 1
Image
(ignore the coffee stained colour of the tag - I stained this ages ago and will ink over it anyhows :wink: )
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers Tags and Bookplates
Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Reinforcers

STEP 2
Fold over the end of the tag to form a pocket and get your crackle paint ready...
Image
Be sure to stick both sides of the folded part down to make the pocket
Image
I've used 'Antique Linen' here which isnt in the shop...but this one is. Its great too :P Ranger - Distress Crackle Paint - Clear Rock Candy

STEP 3
Image
Paint on the crackle very thick... the thicker - the wider the cracks - and a thin coat will leave very fine cracks. I've used both...painting a heavy thick coat in the middle and fading out around the edges. You need a good 1/2hr to dry OR use some heat on it for much quicker!
Here's how it looks cracked -

STEP 4
Using Ranger Tim Holtz Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool
Image
Drip a couple of drops of 'Distressed Ink' onto the foam pad
Image
Then start rubbing it in a circular motion over the tag. You could also just rub the Blending Tool onto a Distressed Ink Pad and do the same job.

STEP 5
Image
Then with a wet rag, just wipe over just the crackle paint and the colour will show through again.... but it will leave dark colour in the cracks......a fabulous worn look!

STEP 6
Image
Ink up a little embellishment.

STEP 7
Image
And glue it to the tag pocket

STEP 8
Image
Pop in a couple of little tiny tags into the pocket, and tie some string around the tag like you would a parcel. And if you have some lovely hardware like these Prima Vintage Trinket Birds or the like...try one and see how it looks.

I've never used any brand of crackle paint successfully - probably because I don't use nearly as much as you did on this tag! Time to try again maybe...
