the Zindorf tutorial can be found here ... and my crackle stamp is THERE --- in Michigan. So I did the whole image and clear embossed the bird and did all the moon and sky and all and then held my breath, took a piece of crumpled LLBean catalog ( I stamp on them ) and added the "crackle" look.
Whew! It worked!
Unfortunately I didn't really crop it too well with my scanner and got an uneven scan of the off white background and totally lost the next layer which is teensy and beige. I was just glad I got it to scan at all!
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
