Venetian triptych: Designed for ARTChix

Helga, from ARTChix, sent me more samples and they arrived last week. Among them this Venetian Triptych; They are really good quality, sturdy items, made from recycled wood fibre. so smooth so it makes for easy stamping and inking too....

You can also get the German scrap from ARTChix as well as the little metal rose in the centre and the pink collage element in the middle.
The side panels were painted in a copper based paint then coated with a verdigris (green patina) solution. The middle was inked using Versamagic chalk inks, stamped with stazon black then I added the middle panel. I burnished over the pink middle panel with a copper gilt wax polish, then glued the other elements in place. The German scrap was coloured with alcohol inks and allowed to dry before gluing on.
