I thought I would share with you something very different for me. I ususally just make paper crafts and find altering thing a little out of my comfort zone. Well my dear friend Tilly had a birthday yesterday and always make her friends thing so I had ago and did a picture.
This was a frame I had got many moons ago but never used so although it was fairly large off i went with it to my room to get out my inks and paints. 
And this is what came out what do you think. Tilly liked thank goodness

This is how it started out
ASDA Distressed Light Wood Photo Frame - 10x8 Inch

  close up of the image which is a Mo Manning

Inks are Inkiluscious london blue and lime over sprayed with gold mica spray. Image coloured with promarkers. lace from stash. Sizzix diecut boarder. Cherry lynn  flourish, memory box butterfly. Pearls. Flowers from Wild orchid andthe works. Card from Papermill & gold mirri card. I hope the shimmer shows in the picture. The colours where picked to tie into Tillys colour scheme at home.
I was pleased with how it turned out but the glass on the frame made the image look paler than i would have liked. Not sure if it got lost in the frame.
