Grandma's Parlor Framed

Good Morning! Wow, it is September and it "feels" like September here in NH. It was a nice crisp 45 degrees when I got up this morning. The sky was beautiful!

Being the first Monday of the month also makes it the first day of this months Wink Wink Ink monthly challenge. How exciting for me!, LOL, with this being my first one as a DT member.
This months challenge is to make "ANYTHING BUT A CARD". This is always a fun challenge for me since it challenges my imagination. There are only 2 rules! Not bad huh. You can find the challenge HERE.

1. You must use a Wink Wink Ink image. Now...don't let that frighten you away or cause you to decide not to enter. I know that when I must use a certain company image, I click away from that challenge because I don't often have one of their images. BUT WAIT...Melanie is sweet enough to have a FREE digi every month. So now, if you don't have any of her adorable images yet...You can get you very first one for $0.00. THAT is a price I can afford, lol, and I would be shocked (really!) if you could not afford that too, LOL.

2. Up load your card to your gallery using 2 tags, "WWI090610" AND "winkwinkink". That way it will be easy for the DT to find it.

This months challenge ends September 30th.

Super easy rules to follow, so join us, OK {{{wink}}} <<< tee he he, I couldn't help myself.

The 2 lucky winners (that's right 2!) will be able to choose 2 Wink Wink Ink Images. For me that would be the hardest part of it all since I love, love, love just about every image she has and own them! I don't think I could choose between only 2!
For this challenge I used 10 of the Wink Wink Ink images from Grandma's Parlor Collection , Grandma's Parlor Set 2 and the doxie and her pups are from Doxie. The 2 framed images are from Create With TLC.

Here are a few close ups for you. You can always click on any one of the images to get a better look. You can even enlarge your screen to 150% without loosing the clearity.

For the gold around the frame I used my beloved Krylon gold leaf marker. The gold in the actual picture was added using the Prisma liquid gold marker. The image itself colored with my Copic markers.

I purchased this frame 1 1/2 years ago for a project that I never made (well, it is obvious I did not make it, LOL, since I still have the frame)

I am very excited to see what you make so I will be browsing the galleries for the the tags. You can also post in the discussion that you have uploaded your project. Doing that allows us to RUN over and see it right way.
Have a super September day...And Labor Day!!!
