Hi all!  This is a simple tutorial on how to get this distressed, cracked look using chipboard.  The chippie I used here is called Twirly Hearts (DA0455) and is made made by The Dusty Attic
Supplies Needed:
-Inkssentials Crackle Accents
-White acrylic paint
-Stickles 
-Inkpad


Step 1:  Place your chippie on a paintable surface or scrap paper.
STEP 2:  Paint the chippie with white acrylic paint.  I applied a second coat after the first coat dried thoroughly.  You can use a heat tool to speed up the drying process.
STEP 3:  Ink the desired areas using an inkpad.  I used the blending tool by Ranger to apply the ink.  You can use a foam make-up wedge as well.  Allow to dry.
STEP 4:  Apply a dab of Stickles (preferably in a color that complements the ink) onto your finger.  Smear it all over the desired areas.  I only covered the inked parts with Stickles.  






STEP 5:  Apply a layer of Crackle Accents on the entire chippie and allow to dry.  It will take a little while to dry.  






Once dry, it should look something like this.  So simple yet beautiful!  Hope you find this tutorial useful.  I am in the process of making several tutorials on how to alter chipboard.  Until next time!
