Clarity Challenge - Boys

 I masked the edge lines from Gone fishing with my Dog and stamped using Black Stazon, added additional foliage from Birdhouse & Picket Fence and Tree branch Stamps
Coloured with antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks
Applied a coat of DecoArt Crackle Glaze and then rubbed in Pumice Stone Distress Ink

The ATC frame from Calico Craft Parts, was painted with DecoArt Crackle Paint
Once dry, I coloured with DecoArt Media Acrylics Burnt Umber and Prussian Blue 
Wiping back some areas
Finished with a little Metallic Lustre Lavish Green

On the back of the I printed a wonderful Poem click here, that fits so perfect with the Stamp
Distressed with the same Inks and watermarked and stained and finished with Ultra Matt Varnish
