Spook-tac-u-lar Day 22: Crackle Boo Sign

Welcome back to Day 22 of Spook-tac-u-lar Halloween Crafts with Jean and Rhonda.  Be sure to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/ when you are finished here.

For today, I have a Crackle Book Sign to share with you. 
To make this, I used another wood block piece that I found marked down.  I also used Folkart Crackle Medium, Titanium White Paint and Metallic Gun Metal Paint.

To begin with, I coated the block with the gun metal gray paint and let that dry.

Next, I used the Crackle Medium and applied a thick coat over the gray paint and let that dry.
Finally, I applied the top coat of white.  As this coat dries, the crackle will begin.

Once this was completely dry, I used the Don Juan Cricut Cartridge to cut the word Boo out of black vinyl and apply it to the block.

Next, I took a piece of black ribbon with white stitch lines and a premade bow and hot glued them to the block to finish it off.
