Mixed Media card ~ Be Happy and Smile

Good Morning :)
Last week at the Crafts 4 Eternity monthly crop the workshop was Clever Clusters. We used printed die cuts to make cluster embellishments for layouts, cards and more!
I made this card as part of the demonstration.
The April Page Kit includes a selection of die cuts.

It's quite simple in design but has a mixed media background and lots of dimension.

The die cuts used are from Kaisercrafts Sea Breeze collection. I added washi tape pieces and silver thread between the layers of diecuts.

The background was an experiment! I saw an article in the Docrafts magazine where a crackle background was created using PVA glue and acrylic paint.
You paint a thick layer of PVA glue on to cardstock, then a thick layer of acrylic paint on top whilst the glue is still wet. when you dry it with a heat tool it cracks.
It was a quick process and the effect was ok, not as good as a crackle product but I do like to experiment :)

Have you tried a new technique recently? Did it work or was it a complete disaster ?
I will be back soon with my final project using the April Page kit.
Have a wonderful day thanks for stopping by :)
Michele :)
