DecoArt Birds and Bones

I love the new Andy Skinner Birds and Bones stamps and I had this Tim Holtz Flip Frame, so I decided to goth it up a bit here's what I did

 Applied DecoArt crackle paste to a wood frame and then fixed this to the back of the metal frame after applying the chains 
Applied two coats of DecoArt Media fluid acrylic and allow to dry

 Mix Metallic Silver & Gold and brush lightly to highlight textures and details

 Emboss acetate, then apply carbon black wiping back with a dry cloth Fix to the frame 
and allow to dry

 Stamp and cut out the Skeleton and colour with a wash of Quinacridone Gold and Carbon Black

Stamp and cut the bird, and colour with Phatholo turquoise and Carbon Black Quinacridone gold

 Gradually apply Quinacrodone to the rear of the acetate, building the intensity around the edge
Hang the Skelton on the chains and glue the bird to the frame

Happy Halloween!
