Here is the pretty screen of the new Cricut Imagine. Look, it even has swirls in the background.
Here is a garland that I printed and cut using my Cricut Imagine.
I also print and cut “Cat-ti-tude”. You saw both of these cuts in yesterday’s post where I made the cat bag.
Well, you know that once I cut and printed using my Imagine I had to attack the result with something. 😉 This time…it’s crackle. I wanted to see if I could crackle the result and how the ink would respond. I think it stood up well! I spread the crackle over both the garland and the “cat-ti-tude”.
There is some smearing, but it’s an acceptable amount to me.
I let it sit overnight and was less happy with the crackle than I am with the way the ink stayed on. I think my crackling would be better shown on a different item. However…I learned 2 things!! #1 – The ink from the Imagine can take crackle pretty well. Yay. #2 – The back of on old Cricut mat is a good surface to craft on!! SWEET! I was pretty happy to find that out!
So…flip over an old tired mat and craft on it!! Woo hoo! Thumbs up to that find for sure!!
Have a Crafty Weekend!!
