Framed Florals

Crafty Individuals challenge this month is HANGING ABOUT and I really wanted to take a break from DT work and participate in a challenge just for fun.
I decided to decorate this hanging frame which I painted with Fresco Finish Paints.  I wanted to create a classic piece in black and white with a hint of silver with my embellishments.
The stamped images within the frame are from Crafty Individuals, CI-262, all stamped in black archival ink onto white card stock. I have added some small domino type embellishments DREAM, BELIEVE and IMAGINE.
Small black roses have been added to each frame to give a real feminine touch to the frames.
The finishing touches are a couple of pewter bees hung from jump rings.  I would also like to add this to The Stampman Challenge which this time around is MONOCHROME and ONE OTHER COLOUR.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated. Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

A beautiful piece of home decor. Colour combination is timeless elegance.
Beautiful use of the CI products.
As much as we all appreciate being part of a DT, we do need that time out to play elsewhere, don't we?! Thanks for sharing.
Wishes
