Recycling with Rose!

Good evening all its Susie here!
Aiden (my 10yr old son)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's 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".
Canvas 1 uses stamps from the Rose's Portrait & Love & Luck sets

Canvas 2 :
uses stamps from the Girl's Ruin & Love & Lucksets

Other ingredients include, Lace and ribbon from my scraps drawer, Heart gem's from Papermania.
