If you never did you should 31

Hi there! Hope you are having a great week so far! I was sifting through my collection of stamps, pulled out a few sets that have never kissed an ink pad and challenged myself to put them to good use. Embarrassingly, the ones I used to create my project have been tucked away in a drawer for over 3 years. 
I stamped the darling vintage image from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder stamp set then sponged on some Distress ink to give it an aged look.
I framed the image with a chipboard frame that I painted, embossed and misted
then embellished with a few flowers, embossed chipboard pieces and some bling.
I'm entering this altered canvas in the Artistic Outpost August Challenge where the theme is anything goes.

Thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my project today.
Be Sweet ;)
