The sides were stamped with the texture from Andy’s Toxic set, love this stamp as is so multifunctional as a Crackle, peeled paint effect, wood or in this case a snakeskin effect.

Distress the outer edges by dry brushing with Carbon Black Media Fluid Acrylic.

Instruction Image #8

The metal embellishments were all coloured with Alcohol Inks.

The beauty of the Interference Fluid Acrylics are always difficult to capture but they add to the metallic effect.
