Hi there! This month I have created a faux metallic flower using Viva waxes and an embossing folder, the background I created using a Creative Expressions Background Stamp onto a pearlescent chocolate colored card and then embossed in Black then just added a sentiment. Hugs Aly xxx

I used a 'Decorate your own bird' frame from The Works, painted with brown acrylic paint and stamped using a Clare Curd paisley 'inked' with acrylic metallic bronze paint. I then daubed fingerprints in places and added the embellishments and the bird picture instead of a photo.

Take care
