Aiden's Rubbish ~ Mummy's Treasure!!

Aiden decided he no longer like the two small canvas car print's he had on his bedroom wall now he's gone all Army. The picture were a bit tatty and too scuffed for the charity shop so I have been busy altering again.
With my Bombshell Stamps this time and have made two (No....I don't mind if I do say so myself) pretty gorgeous pictures to adorn the wall in my craft room.
Before decorating I coated both canvas with endless coats of white acrylic paint
 ( but still didn't cover the picture entirely.... will try emulsion next time! )
then went around the edges with Distress Crackle Paint in "Rock Candy" 
and Stampin Up Ink in Chocolate Chip. 

Both pictures are decorated with " Little Polka Dot's", "Gingham" & "Damask" Pink Petticoat Paper's in Pretty in Pink & Mocha, which I have distressed with more paint and ink,

lots of Wild Orchid Crafts paper Roses and topped off with some Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in "Iridescent Gold".
