The background has been done with the marbling technique using Distress Reinkers in Fired Brick and Black Soot. I have then stamped the background using one of Michelle Ward's stamps.
German scrap with some Treasure Silver and some read pearls complete the piece.
The background for this is using the metallic crackle backround in Halo Blue Gold (Lumiere) on black card. The gold embellishment at the top is from the cuttlebug range - Wrought Iron. The picture is of silent screen actress Theda Bara.
'Children Need Love'
This has used the same background technique as above. I have used a metallic copper and then dry brushed some Jo Sonja Iridescent Turquiose to give it an aged patina. German scrap, brads and some Cinnamon Stickles add interest and Treasure Copper and more Iridescent Turquoise to the edges, complete the piece.
