Elegant Marie Antoinette Shrine

Just a little time spent in the Studio with a project for 

This is an Art Queen Crown ATC that I painted with a tan paint, 
stenciled with Modeling Paste that was tinted with red paint, 
and the stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink and the 
Messy Stamp as the 3rd layer. 

The Marie Antoinette ATC is tinted with Distress Inks and glued to the back of the Shrine. 

The lacy trim made it a little more elegant as well as the Silver Sequin Trim.

The crown was painted gold and then Midnight Blue Glass Glitter and Copper Micro Beads were glued on with Soft Gel.

The Flowers were sprayed with Mica Powders+Water to add more color and sparkle.

I also sprayed the outsides with Copper Mica Powder+Water Spray.

 The Summer Sky Mica Powder is a beautiful bright blue color that I mixed with Soft Gloss Gel and paint onto the wooden pieces. 

Then I sprayed with Copper Mica Powder+Water Spray and heat set.

Glue it all together with some 3D Matte Gel and its done!

Hope you're inspired to make a little project of your own. Now is a great time to start making.....
Christmas presents!!! 

Just sayin'.
