Here's my entry for the simon says stamp and show challenge
the theme this week is ANYTHING BUT A CARD.

I am also entering this for the the artistic stamper challenge
which this months theme is layers.

I can't seem to stop making these mirror's
(I am now buying them in bulk, lol)

I used a sheet of 12 x 12 graphic 45 paper, cut it to size,
then stuck it down with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte medium,

I then blended Brushed Corduroy distress ink over in patches,
to give it an aged look,

I then wiped Walnut Stain over straight from the pad round the edges,

I took a silver paint dabber & applied it with my finger randomly over the surface.

I then set to work on the flower corsage part of the design,
(all the stamps are Wendy Vecchi's)
& stamped onto grunge paper,

The Distress Inks I used are,
Forest Moss & Peeled Paint for the 2 types of leaves,
& Victorian Velvet, Rusty Hinge & Milled Lavender for the flowers
( it's a strange combo, but I think it works)

I formed the flowers & leaves to give dimension.

The centers of the flowers are two pairs of earrings
& the butterfly is from a belt,
these are all from boot sale purchases.

look at how many butterfly's are on this belt,
I paid 50p for this, bargain hay!!!

I have used 2 pearly stick pins & 9 vintage metal buttons,
from my stash, all stuck with silicone glue.

I am so pleased with the way it turned out,
I hope you like it.

I put a white piece of paper over the mirror part
to make it easier to photograph,
so I don't get any reflections.

Thanks for stopping by today
Back soon,
