J&C Creations challenge

May - All that glitters
This creation was inspired by the new embossing powders from Stampendous, they have a real vintage look to them. To begin with I cut the frame from gold satin mirri card using a die from Heartfelt Creations 'Decorative Window Scene'. I then placed it on top of my background paper and lightly drew around the centre opening so I knew where to cut a hole. I mounted the frame on the backing paper after cutting the opening and used Halo Glitter Mix Gold to fill in the cut outs. The frame is mounted on foam pads to raise it away from the photograph a little.
The small flowers are embossed with Aged Rose and Aged Aqua powders giving them a beautiful aged speckled look. The large flower is covered with Earth Elements 'Bed of Roses' which smells heavenly, a rose scented card with added bling, perfect. I stuck some little gems in the flower centres and added a few sprigs of die cut foliage. The finishing touch is a nice cream and aged gold organza bow.
