DT - Anything Goes @ Marvelous Magnolia

Hi everyone,
I'm here today with a midway reminder with
 Marvelous Magnolia's Romance Team 
Our current challenge is.... Anything Goes!
Wow, the sky's the limit with an open challenge like this, and I decided to revamp an old frame I've had kicking about doing nothing. I might try and sell some of these frames on my Facebook page when I get round to setting it up!
I painted the frame with white acrylic paint and once it had dried I then added some white crackle paint.
I stamped Magnolia's Swedish Cottage stamp to the backing board and added white crackle paint here and there. Next, I glued some cheesecloth on top of the stamped backing board before fixing a small canvas in the middle. Underneath the canvas I arranged buttons, shells and other seaside decor.

To the canvas I glued the image - Magnolia Swedish Cottages and Bikini Tilda, coloured with DI's. I didn't mask the two stamps together as I normally would as I didn't decide where to put Tilda until the last minute. I added glossy accents to the cottage windows and liquid pearls for Tilda's ankle bracelets.
Magnolia doohickeys used - scalloped, stitched lace, leaf and banner flags.

Lace from my stash and WOC flowers completes my altered frame.

We are lucky to have three wonderful sponsors this fortnight, they are:
