HDH140 - Vile Vintage

We are to take something vile and make it appear vintage, or maybe use something vintage that would be considered vile!  Check on over at Haunted Design House to see what vile vintage things the others have created. 
 
 
I took a shoe box and covered the lid with newspaper and pva glue.  I then drew my death doctor image on tissue paper and coloured with copics and promarkers.  I did quite a few then glued them on with water and pva glue.  I then sprayed with cosmic shimmer a kind of gold one, when that was dry I used some Ranger posh metallic inks on the beak of the image and some charcoal on the background.  When this was dry I painted with ranger crackle paint then when that was dry I used one of the distress ink pads antique linen.
 
I know a lot for how rubbish it looks.  I just don't have the knack nor the time to experiment and get it right.  I am hoping to get some of the alcohol inks and some of the other stuff soon as I love the look of the things created with them.
 

Anyway let us see what vile vintage things you can create.

Looks awesome! Throw some more bits and bobs on and it will be phenomenal! Maybe some paint drips or splashes or some dimensional bits for interest. It's a great piece Andrea!
