Keep Young and Beautiful

This month's challenge at Crafty Individuals is 'Hanging About' and over at Craft Room the theme is Home Decor, so this is my entry for both, using Crafty Individuals' stamps, image and mini canvas. If you want to take part here's what you need.




I painted the large canvas with cream acrylic paint and turned the mini canvas over to form a frame and painted the inside with the same colour but the outside in Craig & Rose Opulence, pearlised silk paint in Rich Sari, available from DIY stores. The pearl edging was bought by the metre and trimmed to fit.

The image is from the Miniatures 'People & Places 2', with a little dilute cream acrylic paint brushed over the edges to soften it. I then used the Opulence paint to create the swirl pattern on the large canvas, using a plastic stencil and overstamped CI - 017, a lovely script stamp that I wouldn't be without. I attached the pink trim with Glossy Accents.

I stamped the corsetry image CI - 306 onto white card using VersaMark and heat embossed in red. The dress form and umbrella are from the same stamp.
