Make it Feminine & Fancy at Try it on Tuesday



Hello, time to tell you about the new Challenge at Try it on Tuesday which is Feminine and Fancy.
I've got a mounting stack of boxes that DD keeps saving for me, so I decided on a pretty makeover for this challenge.
I added strips of lace, flowers and bits from the 'box', plus some embossing with a couple of stencils, when it was dry, I gave it a coat of Gesso.  It was coloured with Distress stains in Chipped Sapphire,Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, and Tumbled Glass. When it was dry I added a couple of shades of gilding wax and a quick spritz of Biscotti Perfect Pearls.
The rest of the DT have some gorgeous makes to inspire you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

This is a scheduled post again, but hopefully I'm relaxing in the sunshine, and when I get too hot, I'll look for some shade and do some blog hopping,
Thanks for your visit, and hopefully, I'll catch up with you soon,
Avril xx
