Magic is believing in yourself...

Hi everyone,
I'm feeling organised this week so I finally had some time to use my first Stempelglede stamp:

I wanted to play along with the challenge over at the Stempelglede blog and here is the mood board I used for inspiration:

I've used the bottom colour scheme and my favourite images were the lace and windows so they influenced my choice of paper and embellishments.






























I've added Diamond Dust to the star and flowers to get that frosty texture from the first window. I've also tried to get a cracked paint effect on my frame by adding Crackle Accents to a layer of gesso (with a little paint dabber over the top to soften the gloss) and you can just about see it in this photo:




























Here's the list of everything I've used:
Stamp - Stempelglede
Papers - Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics
Frame - Spellbinders
Lace, Diamond Dust, shabby bark star, cheesecloth, frosted berries, gesso, stamp, papers - Live and Love Crafts
Open roses, carnation, cottage rose - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon - Ribbon Girl
Pearls - Samuel Taylors
Pen Nib - Tim Holtz
(The Frantage is a mixture of Chunky White and Aged Silver)

There is also a giveaway taking place at the Stempelglede blog and you can find a link to it here.
