altered frame and some linky parties

hi all , here is a frame i altered in my favourite theme ..vintage ..yummy vintage !
 the paper is one i have had lying aroung for ages it is pearlescent and has script written al over it it inked it scrumpled it and then decoupaged it to the frame in various torn pieces , i then aged it a bit more with distress ink , brushed corduroy . the rosette i made myself with plain card folded and inked , the flower centre is mine too some of the same paper as the frame but aged and distress more than the frame ( when i saw this result i was mad i ha not aged all teh paper this much it is fab ) i tacky glued the flower to the centre and spritzed the whole thing with glimmer mist walnut gold (gorgeous stuff ) the black "plaque" is black card spritzed as befoe and gem brads added . the wording is black ink on brown paper bag paper and topped with glossy accents mmmm glittery goodness .then it felt a little flat so i added the black velvet string to a channel around the inside frame and i think that just about finishes it .have been in vintage mode all week and have lots more to share x
