Altered Hanging

It is quiet on my blog since SCD closed (I do miss the challenges and feeling part of the craft thing) I have also had a busy time since Christmas but I found time to make this little altered wall hanging for a friend because she had a lovely cat keyring which I admired and she gave it to me (mainly because I really enthused over the keyring LOL). I painted the frame in acrylics and crackled the paint, I then rubbed in metallic to distress it and finally stamped the frame. The centres I used text paper and inked it with scattered straw then built up a flower scene rubbing metallic into them to get a distressed look, the centre I did the same with a butterfly and dabbed glitter glaze around the whole thing. Its funny how things evolve when I started I didn't know what I was going to do but am pleased with the result.
