Altered photo frame -- F

Well I have news for you all this week.  I have been asked to join CRAFTY RIBBONS DT - what could I do but say yes.  I have not been on another DT since starting my own challenge blogs so a change is as good as a rest.  I am provided with ribbons so I have used quite a few on this project.  The challenge for this week is ANYTHING GOES WITH RIBBON so why not head on over and join in with the challenge - we would love to see you there.

I have used
an old wooden photo frame - forgot to take a pic of before SORRY!
cream chalk paint (quite a few layers)  I scratched the paint off randomly with scissors instead of crackling it
TH distress ink over the top
CRAFTY RIBBONS vintage ribbon for edging, flower and bow - frayed by me and distress ink wiped over
CRAFTY RIBBONS canvas type ribbon for another flower - frayed by me and distress ink wiped over
CRAFTY RIBBONS velvet ric rac for the 2 smaller flowers and distress ink wiped over
couple of small crochet doilies under flowers again wiped over with ink
leaf appliques and distress ink wiped over
string pearls
inka gold over raised corner 

Well thats all the ingredients and here are the pics.....

Hugz and love to all
