Wild Life Altered Crackle Frame with Sin City Stamps

Today I am using SinCity Stamps Wild Life Stamp Set to create my Crackle Art Frame. I started with one of those dollar unpainted frames you can find at your local craft store. I first painted it cream, allowing it to dry completely and then added a thick coat of crackle paint to the frame, again allowing it to dry completely. HINT: It is important that the crackle dries completely and that your stokes of your paintbrush always goes in the same direction. Once the crackle has dried, than paint the top with black paint and again allowing it to dry completely. SET A SIDE

I placed a piece of cream card stock  in the inside of my frame. I  layered my whole inked and distress image on to a distress piece of black card stock, placing it in the center of frame.  Using pop dots I layered my fussy cut animals on top of my whole image once I had it in the frame.I stamped my "Wild Life" image onto white card stock twice with black memento ink. I colored both images using my Copic Markers, leaving one image whole and fussy cutting the animals out on the second image with a pair of precision scissors
I stamped a tag using the  "Courage...the difference between success and failure" to a piece of cream card stock, wrinkled it up, distressed it with a distress tool and brown ink. I tied it to a large key that I found using a piece of blue ribbon, added a "Believe" light bulb that I backed with blue card stock and added it to the top of my frame.
I hope you stop by SinCity Stamps Store and check out all the fabulous stamp sets and other wonderful products that are available. Hugs Pammejo
