Happy Birthday and Mother's Day

A couple of cards to show. I am loving doing my other projects at the moment, but I cannot show the little altered box I made as it is for my daughter's birthday and I don't want her to see it on here until after her birthday.
  • Using free Webster papers from magazine
  • Spellbinders Rose Creations die and coloured with promarkers
  • Rosette trim, glitter, pearls and daisy brads from stash
  • Downloaded papers from Crafters Companion
  • Distress inks - vintage photo
  • flower from a made up rose that I took apart and just used some of the petals
  • seed beeds for flower centre
  • glossy accents on buckle
Thank you for popping by. Karen xx

Altered Mirror

Well I finally had a go at this mirror that I nearly threw away as some of the wicker had broken away.
 I painted the wicker frame with a couple of coats of white acrylic paint and I made the flowers with different materials and ribbon, some using the Tim Holtz tattered floral dies. I also added two white foam roses and some pale blue ones that I removed from an old hair clip. Added some beads and a marabu feather and a butterfly that I got from The Works.  My daughter wants to change her room colour to Turquoise so I made this in mind. I seem to be obsessed with making flowers at the moment.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely weekend. Karen xx
