More mixed media challenge: anything goes + optional brown

This is my design creation for More mixed media challenge for September: anything goes + optional brown. Please click on the link to see the wonderful creations of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge with your mixed media crafting.

I used a 'Decorate your own bird' frame from The Works, painted with brown acrylic paint and stamped using a Papermania Clare Curd paisley stamp 'inked' with acrylic metallic bronze paint. I then daubed fingerprints in places and added the embellishments. I didn't have an appropriate photo, so I thought the birdie circle would be appropriate.
