UK Stampers Competition Vintage Photo

I nearly forgot to blog this. It's my entry to a competition on UK Stampers Forum, which ends at midnight tonight. The challenge was to use at least two of the following: a Vintage Photo, Buttons, Pins, Fabric, Lace, and Glitter.

I used crackle paint and blue mica mist on the frame and popped a Crafty Individuals' image behind it. I made a couple of flowers from moulds and coloured them with mica powders. The flower top left is made from pieces of Poundland organza, held over a tealight. Actually I realize now I had originally put a button in the centre of the flower but then changed it for the flower mould so I think I lost the plot as it was a button for a reason! Duh!

I blobbed some Glossy Accents on the frame and 'sprinkled' with pearly beads. I bought some lace with a leaf design at the Newbury show the other week so I cut the leaves out and tucked them around the flowers. The cream 'sprigs' I absolutely love, and were cut from some beautiful fabric that lovely Lynne (Adorn) wrapped some presents to me one birthday and I saved it. I pushed a pin from Ribbon Girl through the fabric.

I don't often mention UK Stampers here but they are a group of lovely stampers and I really enjoy being part of the group - I don't join in as much as I should.
