  1. Using Memento ink, stamp the angel from the Guardian Angel Clear Polymer Stamp Set and the skull border from the Skullduggery Border set onto Neenah cardstock.
  2. Fussy-cut the images, color with Copic markers, and edge with a black marker. Set aside.
  3. Using Peacoat and Baltic Blue Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paints, paint the base of the Reliquary. Heat set.
  4. Use a circle punch or a circle die to cut a circle from a plastic looseleaf divider. 
  5. Sponge Snowflake Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic over the circle onto the top of the reliquary base to create a moon. Heat set.
  6. Using Onyx Black VersaFine ink, stamp the Bat Colony over the moon then stamp the Tree Branch onto both sides of the reliquary base. Heat set.
  7.  Cut the skull border, then glue the pieces to the bottom of the reliquary base as shown.
  8. Adhere the angel as shown. 
  9. Set aside the base of the reliquary.
  10. Paint the top of the reliquary with Stone Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint.
  11. Press the painted reliquary top into the VersaMark ink pad. Sprinkle with clear Detail embossing powder, and heat set. Repeat.
  12. Glue the top to the bottom of the reliquary arch.
  13. Apply black gesso to the canvas panel. 
  14. Add Grey and White Brusho Crystal Color into the Texture Sand Paste, mix well, and spread over the canvas. 
  15. When dry, trace the arch was traced onto the canvas as desired with a chalk pencil.
  16. Add Grey and White Brusho Crystal Colors to Grunge Paste, mix well, and spread over a brick stencil onto the canvas avoiding the traced area. Let air dry.
  17. While the canvas dries, brush London Bus Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint onto metal tokens, then wipe. 
  18. Back the  "31" token with black cardstock. 
  19. Thread Black jute through the holes in the metal tokens.
  20. Edge a Quote Chip with red marker, then apply a layer of matte medium, let dry,
  21. Brush a thick layer of Distress Crazing Medium overtop and let dry.
  22. Apply red Distress ink over the crackles, wipe, and repeat if necessary.
  23. When the Grunge Paste bricks on the canvas are dry, apply glue to selective areas of the "mortar", then shake Mini Art Stone into the glue. Let dry.
  24. Shake some Grey Brusho Crystals onto a craft mat. Spritz with water, mix, then brush onto the canvas to add color and depth to the bricks, the mortar, and to tint the stones.
  25. Adhere the arch, tokens and quote chip to the canvas.
  26. Edge with Jet Black StazOn ink to finish the piece.
