Simon Says Bling It On!!!

 I made myself smile here with this title... but that's all I am smiling about just now... having more problems with mum, so forgive me if I'm a bit distracted ...

Well Simon Says Stamp and Show some bling this week and I really fancied doing this one.... so I made some more of those fabby copper flowers and pasted them with Inca Gold purple paste... yumminess..

 Here they are in close-up... they are so interesting to make and so blingie when they are adorning a piece... this corner has some Vintaj flowers added as foliage...

 The TH sewing room die is cut from thick card, embossed with a cuttlebug swirls folder then blinged up with Inca Gold gold and purple pastes... I added some lovely broidery anglais layers and a couple of flowers, dyed with purple distress ink. A pearl at the throat and on the bodice bling up the rest of this part...

 The BLING letters are cut with a TH alphabet die, from thin, sparkly card.  The beautiful corner piece is also from Vintaj, with a large and medium sized pearl dangling, all blingie-like!!

 Here is the whole piece, front on, showing the TH pearl and blingie chain hanging on a charm clip from a hitch fastener. Loads of bling!!!

Finally, the frame was painted with Fresco paints in London nights and vintage lace with a pva sandwich, to crackle . I smeared Inca Gold gold and purple pastes and bronze rub and buff... A piece of TH paper was inked and printed it layers of stamps and distressed ... I really enjoyed this project and hope it fits the bill...

Thanks for looking and commenting
Love and light

Hi Frankie! Love your frame for this week's BLING challenge. It's wonderful! I love your dress form and how you've "dolled it up". Love the metal roses. They are beautiful! Love the metal flourish style embellishments on the frame's corner, too. I think I may have to try those Fresco paints. I've seen a lot of people using them and I'm fascinated. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

This is just crazy wonderful! I love everything about it from the crackled distressed frame to the fabulous metal flowers to the sweet eyelet ruffles and that sensational metal corner piece, which is the icing on the cake. Super take on the bling challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
