Challenge over at Outlawz ......D

I have to apologise for being MIA from the Outlawz, Paper Ala Mode challenges recently but I found my time was eaten away by work and family stuff.  However I am BACK lol. 

It is my turn to chose a theme and to make it easy for all it is once again

I decided to alter a mini chest and a canvas with my friend Paula's birthday in mind.  

First off I used gesso.  I lay down a coat of pink paint and then cream mottled over that.  I stamped all over using script and crackle stamps.  I then stamped onto tissue paper using one of my new stamps, The ladys face from a TH collection. I reversed one so they would look as though they were looking at each other.  

I laid a strip of lace over the top and dabbed aged mahogany DI through it.  Not really noticeable in the pics but it is there lol.  I then wiped brushed cordrouy round the edges to give it the vintage look.  

I used a PHLAX alphabet made by Stampers anon and cut round her name and triple embossed the letters.  I wiped amethyst rub and buff round the edges.  The date and year was simply stamped on.

So there you go my inspiration for you guys and now I would like to see yours in the entries for ANYTHING GOES.
