Altered Frame

I made a frame for my daughters boyfriend's birthday and she didn't want to give it up because she liked I had to make a second one.  I made this one a little more feminine with the Swan Wing Glitter Tinsel on the wings, and I added the dog tag (he always wears his grandfathers).  I started by painting the frame with an acrylic grey paint, then painted the sides with black (the two colors he always wears), and dry brushed streaks of black on the front.  Then I took my old Artifacts stamp set from SU and inked it up with a teal acrylic paint and stamped them on.  For the wings and sword (he sword fights) I used Spellbinders Heraldry dies.  Then for the dog tag I used the SU punch then embossed 3 layers of Silver embossing powder, from Sparkle N Sprinkle and then stamped the letters with Versamark again and embossed with Black Detail ep.  I outlined the heart frame with buttons from my collections.

Thanks for looking and have a great day:)
