From bargain...

...to treasure.

This is what Emma & Margaret came across during a recent trip to Ikea. What made it even more interesting was that it was reduced to £2.99 because of it being an end of line.
It must have sparked some crafty ideas becasue they bought a load and then came up with a project for today's crop - with some help from Caroline who made up a sample as a demo piece.
From boring tea-light holder to pretty frame with the help of some Webster's Pages PPs, some dotted swiss CS, a few die cuts, assorted brads & blooms and some alcohol inks.
I added some grunge paper roses coloured with toning alcohol inks and blinged up a bit with some stickles, along with a couple of pretty hair clips and some embossed ivy-leaf punched shapes. Oh, and I nearly forgot the resin butterflies that I found recently and had to buy as I was sure they would come in handy for something LOL.
I just love the way the 'Tim Holtz' style roses really add something to a project.
I think I need to convert some photos to B/W or Sepia for this project so at the moment there are no pics on it but I really love the way this all came together......

How come you haven't got your one posted on your blog, Lucy?

Finger is not too bad - but that'll teach me to try and unblock glitter glue with pointed scissors LOL
