Make art: Two tutorials for one project

Hello my dear crafty friends!
It's Irit here and today I have two whole tutorials for one art piece I made with Rubber Dance stamps. 

This project was made with two separate tutorials: one for a frame and one for the central stamped art piece .

Supply list:

 IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko: VersaMark Watermark stamp pad, StazOn inks: Blazing Red, Azure, Mustard; Walnut ink Antiquing Solution: Terra Cotta, Walnut Ink; Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray; Shimmer Spritz Sparkle, Jumbo  dauber; Fantastix tool
Rubber Dance stamps: Dancing woman collage , Music background, Da Vinci set, Vintage Birds set
TCW: Wood grain stencil
Prima: Flowers
Flourish with a bling: Pearls
Other: white chipboard, ruler, gesso, glossy cardstock

Step by step instructions:

Stamp your Dancing woman collage stamp with VersaMark ink over 8*6'' glossy cardstock and heat emboss with fine black embossing powder
Cut a piece of a cardstock around the stamp to use as your mask and adhere it to the stamped image with2 repositionable glue as shown. Stamp around the mask (and over it) to make the background with two background stamps (Music and Lace) and add Art and Dream words on the left bottom of your stamped
piece. Use the same VersaMark heat embossed black embossing powder technique as we did previously

Take some smaller stamps and fill the gaps around the image and on the background with the same technique. Add some stamped dots using the backside of some round brush or another small round tool, stamping directly into the pad and then heat emboss the dots in the same way as we did before

Gather three StazOn inks that will be used as primary inks to make the rainbow look of our stamped and heat embossed image. Use three Jumbo daubers to spread three inks around the stamped piece and try to connect them to make this piece rainbow perfection. Those three StazOn colors work as primary ones and we can make all seven rainbow colors using just those three

Mist your colored art piece with Shimmer Spritz Sparkle and when it's dry add some Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray to get some more interesting texture. Let it dry as we are moving to the Faux Wood frame tutorial for a few minutes.

 Make your own brush tool: cut with scissors each second row inside the old or bad and unused tooth 
brush. Apply gesso with this brush over the A2 piece of thin white cardboard and let it dry.

 Make wood grain texture with more gesso and a wood grain stencil over the first gesso layer. Let it dry a lot!

 Spray some Terra Cotta Antiquing ink over the dry wood grain texture and add more over the edges and less in the middle. Wipe the extra ink with baby wipe and add some more layers if you want your "wood" to be dark.

 Make the faux plaque look with adding some dark ink lines with a simple metal ruler. Use Walnut Antiquing ink and Fantastix tool to make all those lines.

 You sure don't need a tutorial to make this frame from your Faux wood piece and to insert the art 
piece (really should be dry now) into the frame. Embellish it as you wish and enjoy your creation!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed it
