Valentine's Day Spl

This is my first Valentine's Day with my husband. My gift to him, of course other than cooking his favorites :), was an altered picture frame:

I'm proud of what I created :p.

I got a picture frame from Micheals , the dollar one. Painted it white and added loads of embellishment.

For the butterflies, I used 7 Gypsies stamp. I colored them using water color pencils.
The various kinds of roses, rose buds are all handmade.
 I colored the rose petals as well as punched hearts on edges with marker, sprayed them with water so that I get a water color effect.
Humming bird stamp was of inkadinkado and again I used water color pencils to color them.


  1. What a beautiful frame! Love the butterflies and flowers. Thanks for joining us at Creatalicious Challenges.
