Wall Hanging

Hi, I thought I'd show you another little wall hanging I made for someone's birthday:

I've used an 8 x 8 canvas board for this, and coloured it with Walnut Ink Crystals dissolved in warm water.  I've added a touch of Weathered Wood DI here and there, and stamped some Crafty Individuals flourishes directly onto the board using Timber Brown Stazon.  The dress image is by Stamps Happen and is coloured with Tattered Rose neat re-inker - I've stamped it onto a piece of mountboard which has been coloured with Distress Inks.  The lacy roses are from Craft-Room - these come as white, but I've dyed them with the re-inker.  The birdcage is also stamped on mountboard, which has been coloured with inks, and a little dangly trim added.  The bird in the heart was a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine, and I've added some tissue tape round the edges, a handmade flower made from dyed lace, some wooden mini knobs (think these are for a dolls house, lol), and a TH ticket.

As well as linking this to the Shabby Chic Girls Club, I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge - Vintage/Shabby Chic
Shopping Our Stash - Vintage/Distressed/Shabby Chic
Paper Creations Ink - Vintage or Distressed

I hope you like it.

Dear Maria,
Somebody is going to be delighted with their gorgeous birthday gift.
I am having a give away on Sunday for the tag I made. I have never tried stamping but your collage makes me want to....I think we kinda like the same things.
I will be back to visit.
Have a Sugar Sweet Day
