Bombshell time!!

So it's June and I'm Miss June for Bombshell Stamps Woo-Hoo!!!
This is one of those £2 Ikea mirrors BOMBSHELLED!!!

First of all I covered the mirror with torn pages from an old book.
I used a wet glue to stick the pages on as they were quite furry!
I daubed on Purple and lilac Distress Inks.
The moisture from the glue made the inks run and spread into each other giving a nice soft effect.
When dry I used a black ink pad to stamp the Moth and Cherry Blossom all over the frame.
I cutout 'BOMBSHELL' using QuicKutz Eliza font and glittered it with Distress glitter for a vintage look.
I added Prima flowers, Crystal swirls and lace to the mirror.
Finally I stamped, coloured and cut out my bombshells and attached them to my mirror, pride of place!
