Hi all and a good morning to you.
It's Suzanne here and I'm sharing a piece with two of the antiquing creams Jetske has new in her shop.

supplies used
stamps FAS Q3302

gesso black CH-HSP31383
crackle paste white DMM17
antiquing cream
titanum white DMM153-26 and
carbon black DMM150-26
matte varnish DMM24-71
inkpad white brilliance

I purchased a frame with a great detailed dragonfly in it, white on black. That inspired me to alter the frame, but use a similar centerpiece. So I chose the fish skeletons and stamped them with brilliance white.
The frame was primed with black gesso, then painted with different shades of green/blue acrylic paints. For the frame I painted black antiquing cream over the acrylic paint (you don't need much, it goes a long way ...) and titanum white onto the inner frame. When dry I gingerly wiped the cream back with a damp cloth, just a bit damp, not too wet.
Finally everything was sealed with matte varnish.

Thanks so much for stopping by ...
Please don't miss the challenge on the de stempelwinkel stampers challenge blog.

Have a great Sunday. 
Hugs, Suzanne xx
