To start with I repainted the frame from its original dull grey to a green with a bit of metallic gold mixed in and then rubbed a bit more gold over the surface. While that was drying I stamped the image onto white card and heat embossed it. I used a mix of acrylic paint, dye based watercolours and Twinkling H2Os to get the effects and colours I wanted.
Once the paint on the frame was dry I used various other stamps on the inner frame and on the back of the frame and heat embossed them in copper. On the front of the doors I added copper metal accent pieces to help hide the image a bit more while they are closed. I found some vintage amber beads for the flower centres too. I am going on an Elen of the Ways retreat next weekend and this little shrine will travel with me there.

The central image; I have left the glass in the frame to protect it.
The shrine stood with its doors opened for use.
