Right, so after a slow week crafting I have just about managed to get my piece done for the Haunted Design House weekly challenge, this week it was 'Truebie or not Trubie' Its in preparation for the season prem of True Blood, we have to create something that embraces the spirit of vampires.
I thought I would share this, a genuine Vampire heart it has been passed down through the family for generations.My great,great Grandad was a Vampire hunter and this was in an old chest that I found in the atic.
The pictures are not that great as there is a glass window which is reflecting the light. To make this i painted a wooden heart and then added crocco crackle glaze, this was then dry brushed when it had dried, there is a stamped up back ground coloured with Tim Holtz distress ink. the wooden Shadow box/frame thing was done in another technique I learnt in the Andy Skinner workshop, It gives you a real 3d look for the peeled paint. the frame has then had a few Tim Holtz embelishments to finish it off.
I will also enter this into Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is 'show some texture'
