Playing with Wendy Vecchi's crackle paste

I discovered we have a teeny tiny stamp store very close to my house.  They carry some stuff I can't find at the typical big box craft store.  One of the best things I have found there is Wendy Vecchi's crackled texture paste.
I have used Tim Holtz's crackle paint, but Wendy's paste is, well paste.  It's thick and awesome for using with stencils.
My first project was actually just a mop up tag from other projects.  Since I hadn't used the paste I thought it would be good to try it on here.
I started by just smearing a thin layer of the paste all over the card and then drying it with my heat gun once I saw cracks start to form when air drying.  Once the paste was dry I used Evergreen Bough and Gathered Twigs Distress stain to color the paste.  
I randomly added tissue wrap with gel medium.  
The saying is Cosmo Cricket tiny type.  The frame is Tim Holtz's Industrious line.  
Look how tiny that waist is.   The girl needs a cookie.  This image is from Lisa's Altered Art.  I put a book page behind it to add some demension.  The tag is finished off with some crinkle ribbon colored with Evergreen Bough, Gathered Twigs, and Spun Sugar.  
I have another project to share using Wendy's paste.  Be sure to stop back.

Frilly and Funky is having a words challenge this beauty will be in the running.

What have you been crafting?
