Cracked Paint Decoupage box

Hi All!!!!
For this month Challenge at Simply Create Too Blog is "Anything Goes". So here I am with an Altered box. Let's get started now......

This box had a sheet of  mica covering the entire box ,I tried to paint on top of it but it didn't stick I peeled the mica sheet from the box.

This is how it looks after removing the mica.....

For the cracked effect.....first I painted black all over and left to dry completely.Then applied a thin coat of crackle medium,left it to dry still it became slightly sticky. After that I painted white on top....within seconds the cracks will appear.

 Decoupage on the Box

The cracks are seen through the tissue.

Stamped and embossed the sentiment.....the rose diecut is from Elizabeth Crafts. Added color to the edges with distress ink.

Stuck the Hinges with E6000
