Altered Frame ... Tim Holtz Style!!!

Good Morning!
Today I have something very different to share with you, my first attempt at decorating a blank frame! 
I spent the day yesterday painting some I had bought months ago in white Gesso paint so I thought that I best finally knuckle down and decorate one! I decided to do it in a Tim Holtz style with a pink colour scheme :)
This is my first attempt for a frame so I would be grateful for any feedback ...

I'd like to enter this into the challenges at:
THE RIBBON GIRL - VINTAGE PINK & CREAM
PAPER SUNDAES - PRETTY IN PINK
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - ANYTHING GOES
(I accidently entered this challenge earlier this week forgetting to use their products ... so apologies ladies for doing so I was having a blonde moment! lol)


I have used wuite a few techniques that I have learnt so far in my Online Classes, such as Spritz & Flick, Shattered Stains and also using the Crackle Paint!





INKS USED - 
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Antique Linen & Vintage Photo


INGREDIENTS - 
'Urban Tapestry' Tim Holtz Stamp Set
MME Paper
Tim Holtz Crackle Paint
Flowers & Crystal Stem from WOC & Hero Arts
Tim Holtz Butterflies Movers & Shapers Die
Birdcage Die-Cuts by Tim Holtz sent by a fellow crafter
Liquid Pearls - White Opal
Dew Drops from my stash

Thanks for popping by & I hope you are all enjoying the sunny weather here in the UK!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
