Craft-Room Challenge - Picture Inspiration

Another fortnight has flown by and it's time for another craft-Room Challenge. This is the last challenge of the year and sadly it will be the last ever Craft-Room Challenge. It's been a difficult and busy year for some of the DT  and other members are moving to new pastures so we've decided to call it a day. Debi is the hostess of this last challenge and she has a lovely picture for us all to be inspired by.

Our sponsor for the challenge is The MDF Man

Inspiration Picture

For my DT piece I've decorated a frame and taken my inspiration from the roses, colour blue, snow and frost.

I gave the frame a couple of coats of gesso and then painted it blue, when the paint dried I dry brushed a paler blue over the top. I stencilled some snowflakes with modelling paste, when the paste dried I sprayed the frame with Glimmer Mist and melted some white Frantage embossing enamel. I printed the image and painted the edges with blue paint then I put it in the frame. I die cut the leaves and ivy and covered them with Stickles. I've had some red roses in my stash for a long time and I covered them with frosted lace Stickles. Then I glued them to the frame and added some silver cord.

The rest of DT have been inspired by the picture and have made some gorgeous samples so why not visit the Craft-Room and take a look.

  5. Oh, how sad that there will be no more Craft-Room Challenges... I know I've been missing for a while - but then I've been missing from everywhere! - and I'll really miss this one - one of my early favourites amongst the challenge blogs.

    Absolutely gorgeous altered frame, Hazel - the colours and delicate snowflakes are fabulous... what a wonderful response to that fab photo inspiration.
