Aphrodite, Cupid and Wings

Hello everyone! This has been a fun and frustrating project at the same time because the background colors changed frequently. It started with a blue background, then it became teal, then finally a blue-green metallic color. I added crackle, then blue & gold mist sprays. The second background is a TCW stencil that was added with modeling paste, painted and gold Inka Gold was used to highlight the words. The edges looked a bit plain but didn't want to add something that would take away from the stenciled background, so I decided to add a piece of black stock and distressed the edges.

The image is a painting of Aphrodite and Cupid. I wanted to accentuate the little wings so I added a second set of wings, then added Glossy Accents and glitter stickles. The wings at the top are painted with the same metallic paint as the first background and also has stickles. There is a circle in between the wings so I attached a faux gem to it. The top wings and the yellow "lace" are clay embellishments.

I am adding this project to the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by - have a wonderful day!
