Midweek Magnolias #64 Anything Goes with option of Vintage/Fran-tage

Hello my dears,  this is quite a multi picture post so please be patient with me,  I just wanted to show you the longish road this project took to get to it's finished stage. 

It's for our new challenge which starts today over at 

Our theme is Anything Goes with the option of Vintage and using Fran-tage  ( I love using this medium) it makes everything so fabulous looking. 

I started out with a small black bird cage and painted it white then rubbed some of the paint off to give me a distressed look.
I then chose some metal flowers painted them white and then coloured them using Tim Holtz distress inks, I used Fran-tage on the roses, leaves and butterfly, adding pearls where I thought they were needed. 

A close up of the flowers and butterfly after they were finished and added to the cage. 

After adding some lace, pearls and of course Sweet Little Cute Tilda from the Once upon a Time collection available at Magnolia Stamps  This sweet creation now hangs in my craft room among some pretty lace.

Here is a little sneak peak at part of my craft space.  This is where I sit and colour and as you can see I'm a little crazy for my sweet Maggies and anything Tim Holtz !!!  Kelly, Stephanie, Mandy, Mummy, Julie, Dawn and Lizzy - just so you know I am still displaying and loving your gorgeous cards. Mwaaaaaaaaah xox 

Any way that's about it from me,  I do hope you will pop over and take a peek at the stunning creations that Team A have conjured up for you this week.  They are stunning.

In the meantime I wish you all a wonderful day ahead and I hope the sun shines for you where ever you are.
