Easter/Spring Tilda's Altered 3d Picture..

Good Morning All,  Today I wanted to show you my altered 3d picture frame that was hanging on my kitchen wall.  I was actually going to bin it and then a couple of Challenge Blogs were asking for either altered items or encouraging you not to bin it but reuse it.  So I set to work on it.  You can see from the 2nd photo that it was pretty basic. 

I ripped it apart, painted it with white acrylic paint.,  I tried to make a scene using TH distress inks ( Forest Moss & Broken China) to the inside frame and the back inside cover.

I then set about stamping my images, I've used 3 Tilda's and one tree stump and bench stamp. all coloured with Pro markers.. Martha Stewart large punch made the little fence which I then distressed with TH brushed corduroy ink.

I hand cut the little flower pot on the right and yes that was distressed too. I wrapped green thread around it and used the same thread for the stem. The flowers is a Tim Holtz Alteration Die called Rosette, I used the small one and MME papers, added a little button to it. The Flowers are all Prima 's Botanical Range and the brads are from Basic Grey. The little pearls are also from Prima.  The Ornate corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sweet Butterfly is Prima and the webbing has been chalked to give it a green haze. The sweet ornate sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps.

So sorry the post is so long. I thought you might want to know the products used.

I hope you all have a wonderful day ahead of you, for now I'll say thank you for popping in to visit and I hope you come back and see me soon.
