First I cut some matte board to fit into the shadow box and a trangle piece of matte board to fit into the frame sample. I gessoed the matte board and pressed a Sizzix embossing folder into the wet gesso to add some texture. I painted both with acrylic paint. I added a portion of a stamp that had a music score in the upper right corner with some permanent ink.
I added distressed inks to colour the bird and branch. I trimmed the branch so it would fit flush with the frame but fall below the matte board down over the shadow box frame.
I embossed the flowers with some dots to give some texture and painted them with acrylic paint. I added a small punched red circle to the centre of each.
The letters were cut from maroon matte board. I over-painted with white crackle paint and added some red distressed ink after it dried.
The flourish was cut from the same maroon matte board which I left as is.
