Happily ever After

Good Morning everyone:)
Today to share is a Wedding Snap I made for Magnolia. I also made a matching Keepsake Box which is on page 10 of the latest edition of Magnolia Ink.
I wanted an aged ,'Shabby chic' look, so it looked like an old photograph but not sepia.
The frame was just  plain wood which I painted white and stained slightly with Walnut Ink Distress Ink. Once dried I covered with crackle glaze and painted again with white acrylic paint. As the paint dries you can see  all the little cracks appear.
The picure I painted with Black Soot Distress Ink and then gave it a good coating of USArtquest Perfect Paper adhesive matt, to give it that extra feel and flexibility of a photograph. (Love this stuff)!
Flowers are a mixure of Prima and WOC.
All stamps used are Magnolia :)
Hope you like it
Have a great weekend
Debbie xx
