Stampendous Stack Art with Decoart Media Line

Thanks for stopping by. After the Stampendous blog hop a couple of weeks ago that the Decoart International DT took part in we were kindly asked back to play along in their Stack Art week.
You can find all the details HERE with a list of the Blog Hoppers.(this will be up a little later as I am on UK time and they are USA) 
There are prizes on offer for those that hop through the list and leave comments.

You can find the Stack Art Kits HERE, In short they are kits that work together, there are several to choose from and they are interchangeable, You start with the Kraft board packs, You get enough for 4 stacked cards (about ATC Size), there is also a stamp kit for each pack that is designed to fit the pieces in your kit. Finally there is an elements pack with glitter, fragments and frantage embossing powders to decorate your Stacked ATC's

All Products used are from the New Decoart Media Line, You can sign up for Our new Media News letter HERE, The news letter should be startting in August.

For my Stacked ATC I Used the New Crackle paste on the base and used the fluid acrylics to paint, These new paints are pretty much 100% pure pigment with no fillers or bulking agents, this basically means a little goes a long way, a couple of drops is enough for something like this.A coat of the black Antiquing Cream helped make the cracks stand out.
I used one of the back ground stamps and stamped over the top of the cracked surface with archival black ink.
I used the frame section from the kit and used Decoarts decoupage glue to stick the mica fragments to the surface, a coat of Gesso and some paint effects left a nice flakey rusty look.
The Heart,Wings and Sentiment were also painted and given a worn cracked effect with the crackle glaze and the ATC was finished by adding a couple of screw heads from Prima, Thanks Susan ;) an old Fuse and a Dragon fly charm that has been aged with a little paint.

Thanks for stopping by, It means so much to have you spend your time here, If you have some more time please check out the other artists taking part in this week long hop, there are new artists and projects every day. 

I would like to enter this ATC into.....

Try It On Tuesday are having a Things With Wings challenge.
