Feminine Charms

Hi Everyone, Well, it's really been a long leave of absence for me from my blog, but I'm happy to be back. I've been kept busy taking care of things with Alyssa, but am hoping to post regularly again. I've still been creating projects for Scrappy-Go-Lucky, so head over there if you've missed anything.
I had a spare hook on my bedroom wall, and used the gorgeous Feminine Charms stamp set by Flourishes to create this canvas.

The frame is Cheery Lynn die Enchanted Forest (cut in half diagonally) ...

A double layer of crocheted edging makes a soft frame. The dark layer was not quite the right colour, so I used my Copics to change it.

The new Mirrored Sheets by Tim Holtz - it's like a real mirror as you can see from my camera's reflection.

How cool are these flowers ...

Paper flowers dipped in UTEE using the Ranger Melting Pot come out looking like porcelain flowers.

I hope you've all enjoyed my first project back.
I'm entering it in the following challenges:
CopicOz Think Pink Challenge - create a pink project using Copics
AH Designs Colour Challenge with a Twist - create using colour combo incorporating burlap
The Shabby Tea Room Vintage Charm Challenge - create using colour combo, flower and a charm

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Enjoy your weekend, Tereesa :-)
