Anything but a card.

What a beautiful sunny morning it is today.  I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather we have had for the last 2 days.  I have a lovely rudolph shade nose from our trip out yesterday, where we were all organized and took the Sun cream and hats, but ended up leaving them in the car!!  Typical  :o)

So today I have tried something different.  No card but an altered photo frame.

Here it is standing up!

I found a very cheap purple photo frame a few days ago and thought I might be able to do something with it!  So I used black stazon ink and went around the edges of the fram inside and out.  I then stamped the details in the same ink around the frame from an Inkadinkado stamp set.  I have used gems , sakura glitter pen and liquid pearls to decorate.

I used a Kate Knight paper for the backing in all 3 panels.  i then wrapped thrread around the first one.  The fairy is a pergamano fairy stamp and has been cut out with a nellie snellen die which has been inked with purple and black, then liquid pearled.  The image has been coloured with pro markers then glittered on the wings.

The flower is again my unknown stamp with added buttons for the centre

here is a close up of the outside.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Create your own embellies,(flowers)

Thanks for stooping by and for your lovely comments.
