A rejuvanated tatty old mirror!

Found 3 of these mirrors in the loft (obviously prepped in the past for a project that never happened - in fact vaguely remember buying them from IKEA about 7 years ago). So after browsing Stampers they had decorated a frame very similar to this one and it looked really nice so I set to and came up with ..........


I've used K&Co paper, Tim Holtz (but of course!!!) grungeboard flourishes from the Elements range, Ranger inks and a stamp of 4 vintage style ladies. I used some cream card and blended some distress inks on it, stamped the ladies image onto the card with black Versafine, cut them up and then sanded the edges and inked again for a slight distressed look. I love it but then I love vintage! I'm sure the other 2 will be going the same way! !


  1. Oh how beautiful...I love the flourishes they look so elegant in your colour scheme. II am only used to seeing them look grungy)..I think I like them more now I have seen them all pretty.
    Fab little tiles in the middle too.

    ps: Love the background to your pretty!!

  2. This looks really stunning Polly - such a lovely transformation


  3. It's gorgeous Polly, to think they have been in the loft for so long. Can't wait to see the other two! Hope Steve's better, see you in the week.
