Whiff of Joy Challenge # 135 - Craft and Hearts

Hi and good morning everyone. I am here with a first card I show you today. It is the one I created for our new Whiff of Joy Challenge where we want to see


I made a travelling related card using this sweet Henry with Heart Ballon and the Postcard. The sentiments are from Whiff of Joy as well. I coloured Henry with Distress Inks

The red heart ballon is paper pieced first, then I added some clear crackle paint. Something strange happenend then while drying. The dried paint broke off the paper in the center of the heart. I have to peel it away as it looked terrible. It just hold around the edges. Then I added another product in the center, and what happened... it discolored... sigh! But at least it hold this time. That is the reason why you can see two red tones on the heart... this wasn't supposed to be. I am wondering... did something like this happened to one of you before? What can be the reason? Did I added a too thick layer of crackle paint? Any ideas? On my photos the center of the heart isn't dried fully. The colour kept that way also now after dryed.

Have a wonderful day now!
Hugs, Karina
