Poppy Mirror (posted by Claire)

Good morning folks, Claire here with a recycled mirror using the beautiful 'Poppy Meadow' stamps

I created the background by giving the mirror a couple of coats of cream acrylic paint and then dry brushing pale blue acrylic paint. I stamped the images with black stazon ink and used Derwent Inktense pencils and a waterbrush to colour them. I edged the mirror with some gold gilding wax and made some glittery butterflies and a bee to finish off. These were very easy to make - just stamp the images (Butterfly Daisy Collage and Honey Bee) from  on heat resistant acetate with versamark and emboss with gold embossing powder. Add glitter to the back (you can either use a quickie glue pen and dry glitter or stickles) and once they are dry cut them out. I sealed the frame with some spray sealer before attaching the acetate embellishments

Thanks for popping by
Claire xx


  1. Gorgeous frame, love it all

  2. This is delightful with your additional use of the elements from earlier stamp sets. I particularly like your gorgeous blue flowers & how they really 'pop' against the reds & browns. The sky effect works beautifully too & I like the way the image extends over the aperture & continues above.
