Picture Frame

Here is a picture frame which I brought at Sainsbury when it was reduced.I am going to put it forward for a challenge over at Sunday Stampers  the theme being metal. Tegan my grandaughter asked me to do a frame for her Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary [ my daughter Zoe and SIL Matt] so this frame came in handy.I first painted it with acrylic paint allowed to dry then stamped a few stamps randomly around I did some in smokey grey and then just a few in black.The white insert I stamped randomly with happy anniversary stamp also in grey and a few black.I then painted a white sheet with same colour painted and using Tim's tattered flower dies cut some out I then stamped a text stamp on then sprayed with perfect pearls and when dry put together with a brad,I then attached to glass with pinflair glue adding a metal leaf to it,I then added 4 metal corners to finish it off The top pic is Tegan  the middle one is of all the family at Zoe and Matt's wedding the 3rd one is of Libby another grandaughter.
