Design by Erikia Ghumm To get a cracked effect, smear orange crackle paint on your cardstock. When the paint is dry, rub an orange ink pad over the piecing to accentuate the cracks. Poke holes on either side, string thin wire through them, and twist the ends to create a handle. SOURCES: Cardstock: Club Scrap. Ink, crackle paint: Ranger Industries. Pen: EK Success. Adhesive: Xyron. Paper piercer: Heidi Swapp. Distressing tool: Tonic Studios.
