Sugar Creek Hollow....

Aternoon peeps this card is a day late, as the challenge for Sugar Creek Hollow started yesterday, but I've been up till late at night for the past three days getting ready for my daughters wedding which was on Friday, we had a lovely day but the day went by in a whirl, I was totally calm on the day until my Grandson Ethan arrived in the room where we were getting ready and he looked so lovely in his wedding suit with his cravat and his Prince Edward jacket, I was choked up and then my hands started shaking and that was is it..... I was all fingers and thumbs trying to lace my daughter in to her dress, and we ended up being fashionably 5 mins late, the registra had to come up to us. I'll piccies later on in the week.

.......anyway getting back to my project for Sugar Creek Hollow, this fortnight we have the theme of Mixed Media, I have used a few techniques on this card including Frantage.

The birdcage and metal hanger have been frantaged
using the antique pink and the Vintage wine embossing powder.

the stamp is a new one from Crafty Individuals CI389.....Tea at Three, I stamped
the image on fabric with Memento and then coloured it in with Promarkers,
I sticked the lace and floral trim onto the 
hanging and then added the blue and crystal beads to the bottom and sides.

The frame and resin bird are from the Ribbon Girl, I painted both with white paint and then rubbed rose treasure gold onto the frame to hightlight the details.
The image is from Crafty Indviduals which I then added glossy accents on to the top.



The flowers I brushed with white paint for a more shabby effect.

Thought I'd end with a photo of my daughter and my son in law
with Ethan
