Anything Goes #86

Morning all blog friends!

We have a new challenge at Anything Goes!
And this time we want to see Vintage or Shabby Chic!
 The image I have used is IndigoBlu's "Ella Bella". She is absolutely my favorite and I think she is gorgeous!
I've used the technique I learned when I visited England and Lynne's shop Craft Den last year.
Craft Den stock a bunch of IndigoBlu's stamps and of course other goodies!

I started by dabbing "FlitterGlu" on my rubber stamp and stamped it on a paper.
Then I scattered "Mega flakes, Winter Dawn" over the sticky area
and after that I brushed of the loose flakes with a scoochy sponge.
I inked the edges with distress ink, "Bundled Sage" around the image
and then I started decorate my easle card.

I painted a wood tag with crackle paint, Picket fence", 
added the Spellbinder hearts with a sentiment from Magnolia. 
The corners are from Melissa Frances and the DP's are from Prima and Magnolia.
In this picture you can see the flakes in another colour shade. On the first pic it almost looks black but it's difficult to take photos when the image reflect.
The frame is another Spellbinder die that I added some more crackle paint and this time I used "Old paper".
A close up on the Prima flowers with Distress Ink on the edges and some pearls to match.
Here you can see the tag better and also the little butterfly of metal.
As I said, difficult to take photos on a reflecting image.
This time it's silverish, lol.
Last but not least a butterfly from Magnolia's DooHickey.
I made the body of a string. Also inked the butterfly with Distress Ink.
Pop over to our challenge Anything Goes and get your inspiration from the DT.
They have all made a fabulous work!
Thank you for stopping by!
