Smeared and Smudged April Blog Hop....

I thought I would join in with the April Blog Hop over on the Smeared and Smudge Forum. The theme is Dirty Vintage so they wanted lots of distressing and a Vintage Feel to what you made. 
I have gone for 2 Frames with their lovely Ladies in them!  I had a browse round Rick St Dennis Store and decided on the 2 Beautys above!!! 
My first Lady is the Lovely Drusilla The Covent Garden Ghost, you can get here HERE!
I distressed some pretty cream lace and also had the paintbrush and distress inks out to the flowers and leaves so it looked really aged!!

My second Lady is the Scary Lady Greystone of the Castle. Shes available HERE! She looks like someone forgot to tell her she died a few years back!!!
With her frame I distressed the frame then used Crackle Glaze on it and added bits and pieces of mica pearls to make it have a shimmer. 

Here are the 2 frames I bought before I altered them!! Slightly different now!!! 

I would like to enter my frames and piccys into the following challenges too.

ABC Challenge - L for Lovely Lace.
Crafty Boots - Recycling

Here is the Blog Hop list, thanks for dropping by my blog.

Love and Sparkles
