Monochromatic Challenge

A lovely idea for a Challenge on Cup Cake Craft Challenges

I bought 3 small frames for £1 and have altered all of them in different ways. It was nice to have an idea for one of them by doing this challenge.

The frames before--
I painted the frame with PVA glue and let that dry. Then I painted it with some old emulsion paint that had 'gone of '. It was all bitty but dried with a lovely texture. On top of that I added a coat of H20 paint in pink. Added a bit of floaty feather and paper flowers to one corner and buttons and jewels at the side. Loved making this-thank you for the challenge.

I won a £10 voucher when I entered this challenge--YIPEE
