MFP Blog Hop Day 3~ Grandma's Boudoir




Today's beautiful and elegant set is called Grandma's Boudoir. I was inspired by the lovely cameo and went with the more traditional color. The lace and card base are MFP and the paper is by Carol Wilson Fine Arts. Embellished with half pearls.
My second sample uses the vanity with collie image. Stamped in Versafine Black Onyx, colored with Copic markers. I added a flourish stamp from the set to the chair. Nestabilities Fleur de lis frame and Basic Grey Cappella paper which was then run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper folder , half pearls to complete.
