Violet Mirror

Good morning my lovelies, goodness me it seems to be getting hotter and hotter. I'm not complaining though as its lovely to see the sunshine, just not so good being cooped up at work in the gorgeous weather when I could be at home in the garden with my fur babies. I've got an altered mirror to share this morning.

The background was created with acrylic stamped, a coat of cream and then dry brushed with a very pale lilac and overstamped with an Indigo Blu fabric texture stamp. The violet stamp is from Sheena Douglass, painted with twinkling h2os. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. To finish off I've added treasure gold around the edges and a couple of indigo blu butterflies stamped on acetate and embossed in gold.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Craft Room Challenge: Heat embossing
Daring Cardmakers: paint effects
Sparkle and sprinkle: anything but a card

Thanks so much for popping by today
