on the fifth day of christmas the crafty cow gave to me....

 .....a trio of altered picture frames!


these frames are from the kaisercraft range and i have changed them around a bit.
instead of photos i have put in some writing as i am giving these to my inklings kris kringle 
(lol i wonder if she is reading this?!!)

 i painted the frames using a 1/4 soft suede ink, 1/4 gold smooch spray and 1/2 water combination.
 i have used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake colours with some Soft Suede as a hint.

 the new vintage lace from su is just beautiful and i have used it heaps with this project.
same for the vintage tags and rough type alphabet stamps
 here i used a variety of su circle punches and brads to make these flowers

 i also added some little embellishments
-some are su (trinkets, buttons)and some come from the hoarde in my craft room lol
 i asked my fellow stampers  a while back for more uses for that very cool dasher stamp...welll what do you think? his antlers make quite a nice background edging don't you think?
remember to leave a comment to win some lovely home made treats from me

cheers ears

Okay, I have to know, when do you have time to do all this? Your a wife, mommy, SU demo, baker, chef, crafter!! Do you have a clone? Just kidding - not really, you are amazing to be able to do all this! Love those frames - the personal touches and embellishments just show how much you love what you do! Wonderful, Clare!
