Key to the Past

HI all I must say I was very surprised and I am very pleased to be asked as a guest designer (a first for me) especially as it is JFF my favourite challenge site. I have learnt so much from the DT and the regular participants.  

I love vintage so I really enjoyed making this piece. I used a small a tando frame which I painted with antique gold and used rock candy crackle to distress I then rubbed in black and walnut stain DI. I machine sewed the little picture to antique lace and the back ground paper. I added antique style braid, a little rose and a metal key I also used a mini tando heart painted gold. I attached antique lace to the corners of the frame and stamped a key around the frame. The entire piece is called (Key to the Past). Thank you everyone for the lovely comments that are left on my blog every week they always make me smile. Hugs Sandra XX
