Altered snowflake decoration

Have been working on this inbetween looking after a poorly infant & organising family gatherings...

I bought the snowflake from Hobbycraft & covered it with crackle paint, then brushed with gold acrylic & glitter round the edges & stamped a few snowflakes with brown chalk ink. Tilda was coloured with distress inks, her wings & star glittered & then she was triple embossed to give her a glazed, vintage look. A bit of matting. lace, ribbon & flowers later...

And here it is...

Oh my :( the terrible photo I took shows hardly any of the details I described, it has so much more depth IRL... I will really have to try & take a better picture, maybe tonight when the fairy lights come on (they're on a timer - blame my OH!!) it will sparkle a bit more....

So that's all from me & if this is the last time I post before the 25th.... Merry Christmas Blogland!!!!!
