Altered Mirror

Ages ago I bought a cheap Ikea mirror at the car boot and thought it was time I did something with it, so I've been having fun getting messy and came up with this.

I sanded it down then added a base layer of acrylic paint. Inked using Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany distress inks. Stamped script background using Coffee and Sepia archival ink, could really have done to have been Stazon as it doesn't show up very clearly, only where the embossing powder clung to it and shouldn't, lol. Sprayed with gold cosmic shimmer, must add a few other colours to my wishlist. The images were stamped with distress ink and embossed with distress EP in Aged Maghogany. Finally added some odds and ends and Tim Holtz embellishments. The flower is made from grungepaper covered in a Crafty Individuals paper inked and stickled.

If anyone knows how to get the pictures next to each and save space please let me know, I have tried all sorts with no joy.

Thanks for looking
