Something Spooky...

For latest Country View Crafts Challenges latest theme Something Spooky, I decided to create a second decor piece, this time using a Five Panel Frame. Like my first project this month, I used added many layers of Fresco Finish paint, including crackle glaze, and inks until it looked grungy and aged. 
The back piece was painted so it would be darker and give a greater contrast to the Grungepaper images from Tim Holtz. Each image was coloured with  inked them with Antique Linen Distress Stain and edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The skull was stamped and then embossed which gives it a different texture to the other images. The ticket stamp was coloured with Distress Markers so that the number could be in Spiced Marmalade!
I hope that you'll feel inspired to join in this month - there are prizes to be won!

What a fantastically aged feel this has and oh yes, it is also decidedly spooky. Jenny x
