CTMH + Jewel Kade-- Altered Mirror

Nothing beats combining the love for TWO businesses into one project!  I needed a mirror to add to my Jewel Kade display.  I had one in the closet in the "to alter" pile.  So I got it out, pulled out some CTMH supplies and got to work!

I started by spray painting the frame white.  It took three coats and was not fully covered.  But that was ok, and the look I was going for.  I sanded it smooth a little.  Then I painted a layer of CTMH's Create a shade Pearl Paint to give it a little shimmer.  I used the Wings Workshop stamp set and Juniper ink to create the damask pattern.  Then I stamped JK using archival Black ink and Building Block Alphabet.  I used some fat gingham ribbon to create rolled ribbon roses and attached them to the bottom corner.  The paint and ink took a while to dry, so I heat set it (a little too much in one spot, but shhhhh).

I am totally thrilled with the outcome it looked FABULOUS on my display!  I got multiple compliments on it :)
