Saturday's Finished Project

Hello all, 

It's been seven days since my last blog post, so I decided to show you all an altered frame that I completed today. I started this frame last week sometime, and could not decide what to put on it, I tried to grunge it up a little but it still came out too, I don't know but not too grungy... I'll have to try again real soon...I haven't been crafting much this week because I was spending time with the family amongst other things but I will be crafting this week. My days off are coming to an end so I have to get as much crafting in as possible because who knows when I will be able to craft like I've been crafting lately. Well, okay here is my Altered Frame.

 Majority of my frame was embellished using Tim Holtz products. I LOVE Tim Holtz.
 I sprayed my flowers with Lindy Stamp Gang - Scintilating Silver Love that stuff

 Martha Stewart butterly fly punch..
   I tried to make dew drops on my flowers using glossy accents.

other supplies used was WOC roses, Vintage Photo distress ink, Recollection bling and resin roses, tissue tape by Tim Holtz, paper stack by G.C.D Studios- Antiquities 

I entered this project in the following challenges:
Cutie Pie Challenge (Die cut and Punches)
Our Creative Corner (Embellished Frame)
Die Cuttin' Diva's (Anything Goes)
Creative Inspirations (Sparkle)
Charisma Cardz Challenge (Bling)
