This started as an unfinished piece of 4" x 4" MDF. It was coated with gesso then a layer of wrinkled masking tape with some glue and seal to help the tape stick. A layer of the g&s was applied on top and left to dry.
Next I painted the entire piece with silver alcohol ink adding streaks of silver dp. I then added a few dashes of pitch black a.i. and coated the piece with a thick layer of distress crackle paint-clear rock candy. This took almost two days to dry.
Once dry, I started to highlight the cracks by rubbing in black dp and wiping off with a damp baby wipe. A bit more silver a.i. some stabilio all pencil on the raised edges, a few gears with a cracked & chipped star then placed on a glossy black frame .......done!

I'm very pleased with the way this turned out. Hope you like it too.
Pics were taken in different places trying to get a decent pic without the glare. The silver a.i. is really shiny!
Celebrate the day!
