Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #4

MMSC just keeps getting better, check out their latest prize of money!

Anyway, here's my take on the weekly challenge. I'm not 100% satisfied - I think I should have put one more layer of patterned paper under everything, it looks a bit bland like this. Oh well, too late now!

I made the frame from Fimo polyclay and stamped it over with Distress ink Vintage Photo before baking it - then after baking I coated it with glossy varnish. The flowers also have some Vintage Photo on them + glossy varnish. The photo in the frame is a vintage piece printed from the computer. The background is made with Distress inks, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo, over a cream colored card, sprinkled with water and stamped over with water moistened acrylic stamp.

Papers: Cream colored card stock
Images: Vintage photo printed from the computer, Scrappy Cat flourishes
Ink: printer ink, Distress Ink Vintage Photo and Fired Brick
Other: Fimo polyclay, flovers, brads
